I’ve been trying to source some Buddleia plants and/or cuttings, and I’ve just discovered Thompson and Morgan, UK, have cultivated a Dwarf Patio Buddleja.
From their website: http://www.thompson-morgan.com
“T&M exclusive breeding
The best plant to attract butterflies to your garden
Dwarf patio buddleja – won’t take over your garden
15cm (6in) flowers the size of usual buddlejas, but plants are half the size
Long-flowering, brightly-coloured blooms attract butterflies
Easy to grow and problem-free
Plants last more than 10 years
A new twist on a much-loved garden favourite, ‘Buzz’™ is the world’s first patio buddleja! These attractive, compact plants are loved by bees and butterflies, but won’t take over your garden. Buddleja ‘Buzz™ Magenta’ is easy to grow and problem-free with a super long-flowering period. Perfectly proportioned for patio pots and smaller gardens. Height and spread: 120cm (47″).”
I wonder if Buzz will come our way?
