This grower is sure of this plant identification.

I have many small buddleia plants, small to medium sizes...

These have all been grown from naturalised seedlings which have come from a large local buddleija bush which flowers a vibrant purple.

Each pot has one plant or 2 smaller plants

Common names

Butterfly bush, Summer lilac, Orange eye


Buddleja davidii (Butterfly bush). This species of shrub will attract large numbers and varieties of butterflies to your garden. In midsummer long dense flower clusters will appear in profusion and are available in colours that range from deep midnight purple to white, yellow and pink. You should keep them trimmed for a neat appearance and deadhead to prolong the flowering.


They are fully to half hardy, and will require full sun with fertile well drained soil. Suitable for a mixed or shrub border, they are generally easy to grow. Prune hard in winter to control shape.
