Since 1982 I have made hundreds of Buddleja crosses, the majority rejected within eighteen months. I was somewhat surprised, taken aback, when in 2009 in a batch of B. alternifolia hybrid seedlings one plant looked totally different to anything I had raised before or ever seen.
A B. x alternifolia hybrid flowering on the current year’s wood and flowering continuously for four to five months, and even better the flowers had no pollen.
Cuttings were propagated and grown on at Lowaters Nursery and trial samples sent to Plantipp BV in Holland and Pat Fitzgerald in Ireland to go into tissue culture.
As every shoot runs to flower, few cuttings are available and the plants are being raised by tissue culture.
