Buddleja davidii has masses of tiny tubular honey scented lilac flowers with orange throats which hang down in large panicles.
Its leaves are textured, green on top and grey green beneath, and the bark becomes fisured over time.
In summer Buddleja davidii is a mecca for butterflies and bees.
Buddleja davidii is named after Pere Armand David, the missionary naturalist who discovered it in China.
Buddlejas were named by Linnaeus to honour the botanist Reverand Adam Buddle.
