Go for the Buzz varieties. I have Ivory Bizzybee and it was a bee magnet last year, produced great white flowers and was a compact plant. Today I ordered Buzz Magenta on line.
I would not be attracted to buying three varieties because they're on offer. Get a variety you like...blue, white or magenta....as a 2 or 3 litre potted plant and enjoy a 4 or 5' full flowering shrub this summer.
for me, the Buzz varieties....half usual Buddleia davidii .......need slightly better soil than the usual full size plants but are really very accommodating
A "nice scented Christmas" shrub? Sarcoccoca is an evergreen with delicious scent during late winter that fills the garden
