Buy Buddleja 'Morning Mist' (PBR) butterfly bush (syn Silver Anniversary ): Silvery foliage offers a great contrast

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 September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A new form, with leaves that are covered in white wooly hairs, which gives them a soft silvery appearance. This makes it really stand out in the border, particularly when planted near shrubs or perennials that have foliage with a purple or reddish hue. It forms a neat mound, and from midsummer, small white honey-scented (sterile) flowers appear, drawing in the bees and butterflies.

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

Versatile, good-flowering attractive plant

This is a lovely plant - looks great in a pot and has flowers right through the winter even through a really cold snap. The silvery foliage looks great against a dark backdrop and it seems to be happy in a north-east facing back yard which can be damp and gloomy in autumn and winter. A hardy and versatile plant - I'm very happy with it.

Looks promising

Looks to be a goer in an open, sunny, gravelly site. Will take a year or two to build into a sizeable plant, though, as we're sited in fairly windswept spot in East Anglia.

An absolute star plant

An experimental purchase and I bought two. One was about 5' to the left of the other and got more sun and did much better. The combination of silver leaf and velvety white flower clusters are extremely attractive and make a real statement in a large pot.

Still flowering in January!

Took a while to get established. I planted it out in spring 2018, but I think the subsquent heatwave from April through to October may have affected its growth rate (I live on the South coast). It's doing fine now though and has produced flowers all through autumn and winter. It's still in flower now (Jan 2019), despite several overnight frosts! Lovely silvery leaves and delicate white flowers

Nice contract leaf for a boarder

A lovely shrub with a soft grey leaf which is useful for contrast in the boarder. Crocus plants always come beautifully packed so that there is no damage in transit.

I bought this plant because it's wildlife friendly and it's size makes it perfect for a small bed. The leaf colour is very attractive and provides lovely contrast to the rest of the plants I have in the bed. I planted three against a south facing fence and they have all remained in full leaf AND flower right throughout the winter. We have had some serious frosts. If you're looking for showy flowers, however, then this isn't the plant for you as they don't stand out against the leaf colour. I'm more than impressed by its other qualities however.
