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. Compact and very easy to grow, but offering long-lasting colour.

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

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.
