    Much maligned for its habit of colonising railway sidings, buddleja can be a fabulous addition to a sunny border, with dramatic, fragrant flowers that are attractive to butterflies and other beneficial insects. Pruned hard in spring, this elegant white form of the butterfly bush produces huge clusters of scented, yellow-eyed white flowers on arching stems from July to September. In autumn the pointed grey-green leaves gently fade to butter-yellow. Deadheading the buddleja will encourage it to produce more flowers and stop any unwanted seedlings.

  • Garden care: Prune back hard in March, removing all of the previous year's growth to three or four buds.

“A white buddleja with soft grey-green leaves and yellow-eyed flowers and looking best in partial shade”
