Buddleja davidii is a fast-growing and undemanding shrub from China. It is ideal for a wide range of positions in the garden, providing they are sunny and the soil is well-drained. The long, heavy flowering heads transform the bush and make a stunning display for four to six weeks, attracting clouds of butterflies. Prune hard in spring to keep plants within bounds. To propagate, take hardwood cuttings in winter.

Beautiful flower vigourous shrub, flowers are great at attracting butterflies, especially Painted lady, peacocks and 1 or 2 Red admirals. I always prune hard in early spring to allow time to establish over the summer months, flowering on this years growth.
