This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Dark magenta buds open to purple-pink tubular flowers from midsummer onwards, adding colour to the garden for several months. The flowers are loved by butterflies, attracting them in their droves, so this makes a wonderful addition to a wildlife- friendly planting scheme. Very easy to grow, offering long-lasting colour.

  • Garden care: To keep it compact prune back hard in March, removing all of the previous year's growth to three or four buds.

Looks great! Attracts butterflies.


It's very attractive, and butterflies like it. Colour of both flowers and leaves is good. It did well in a south-facing position, even though it was a bit crowded with a Fuchsia bush growing next to it. I really like it, and will probably move it in the early spring so it has more space to grow, even though it's a Petite variety.

A few flowers last year but dark and small .


This plant had a few flowers last year but small and not very noticeable or attractive. Not sure if it's too early yet but only a tiny amount of green at the base. A new one is much bigger with lots of leaves.






Over the years I have planted many buddlejas in many gardens around the country. It is an attractive plant/shrub that is a magnet for bees,butterflies and birds and when I saw this small one I decided to try it out. I planted it in a large pot with plenty of drainage and put it in the sun on my patio. It has thrived and grown. It is not large and has tended to creep more than grow upwards so I have planted some aqueligas, sunpatients, primroses and dwarf irises.

I have received this buddleja. My question is : what size of pot is ideal to plant it out in? Thanks.


It really depends on whether or not you are going to plant it up in stages, or want to pot it straight into its 'forever home'. If it's the latter, then I would opt for something that has a diameter of at least 45cm.
