Oh thank you for your help.  You are right - the leaves are willowy.

I bought a Kilmarnock Willow a few months ago.  It has new branches growing from fairly low down its trunk, which are sprouting upwards in a non-willow like fashion.  This new growth has long thin leaves, not like the rest of the plant at all.  Can anyone tell me:

What is the new growth?

Why is it happening?

Do I need to get rid of it for my plant to survive?

Thanks for your imput.

Oh thank you so much for all this advice. 

Dovefromabove: perhaps there is hope for my buddleia yet. 

Gold1locks and Fairygirl: will try one more chop back in May - fingers crossed.

Verdun: Harlequin does look very pretty.

Well, I think I might replace one with Californian Blue.  I have wanted that for a long time but haven't had any space for it.  And I might put another Buddleia in because I think i may miss my butterfly plant!

I think it must be age and cold.  They are in a comfortable position - sheltered.  Ground isn't boggy either.  If yours are sprouting, then I think mine must be finished.  Have to plant something new!  Thanks for your reply.

I am late to this October thread but have a query re. buddleia which were pruned last autumn.  They look dead.  The wood is flaking and I can't see any evidence of new growth on them. 

  • Does that mean I really have managed to kill them with pruning? 
  • Or are they slow this year because it has been a hard winter?
  • They are fifteen years old.  Have they reached the end of their natural life?

Have I killed mu buddleia Advice would be very much appreciated.
