Description

This is a cultivar of the English hybrid of Buddleja alternifolia and Buddleja crispa raised by Mr. A. V. Pike at Hever Garden, Kent. It grows to a maximum height of about seven feet. The leaves are unique in that the terminal leaves are similar to those of B. alternifolia while the leaves along the lower section of the branch are similar to those of B. crispa. The inflorescences are terminal panicles of lilac-mauve flowers with orange throats. They appear in mid to late summer and attract lots of butterflies.
