Buddleja lindleyana ‘Little Treasure’

Buddleja lindleyana ‘Little Treasure’ is completely different to B. lindleyana; flowering from July to Oct and for this reason I was going to call it Endless Summer, it just keeps flowering The purple–violet flowers are like B. lindleyana, strikingly beautiful (Hillier Manuel). It can be grown as a shrub or possibly trained on a short 1m stem to show off the pendulous flowers.

The flowers are unscented but do have nectar and I have seen one or two Hummingbird Hawkmoth and even better the flowers have no pollen.
