“Yet another great plant from Peter Moore at Longstock Park, also called B. ‘Longstock Pride’. The same cross as the rare B. ‘Pride of Hever’ which it closely resembles. The leaves are like B. lindleyana but slightly serrated. The typical Buddleja flowers are bright purple in open panicles and have retained some of the fine B. crispa scent. It dies down in winter but bursts into life in March.
The Buddleja Garden
Buddleja ‘Hever Pride’ is a cultivar of Buddleja crispa and B. lindleyana raised at Hever Castle Gardens, Edenbridge, Kent, in 1958.
I did this cross in 1999 at the time not knowing it had been crossed 40 years earlier. B. ‘Pride of Longstock’ is widely available and exclusively propagated and marketed by Lowaters Nursery.
