Plant details

A miniature new buddleja which has already undergone a name change from 'Silver Anniversary' to 'Morning Mist'. Its big selling point being the superb, silvery woolly evergreen foliage. The packed tiny white flowers make shorter panicles than the ones on the traditional 3m high bush types (eg 'Black Knight'). Place it to the front of the border to cool down hothouse schemes, or use as a link plant amongst a group of pastels. Not widely available yet, but easily tracked down.
