Buddleja fallowiana ‘Lochinch’ Butterfly bush. A descendant of two Chinense species, Buddleja davidii and Buddleja fallowiana,
this unrivaled old favorite inherited its parents most stellar
qualitieslarge fragrant blooms, white felted stems and a graceful yet
robust stature. Deep orange eyes sizzle amid 200mm long branched
panicles of tightset violet-blue flowers. Blanketed in white wool, the
stems and new leaves make a cozy counterpoint to the smooth green
topsides of older deciduous foliage, which retains
frosted fuzzy undersides.
Around midsummer, when the pendulous racemes of flowers weigh down its boughs, its hard to decide which is more satisfying: Buddleias abundant, often fragrant blossoms, or the myriad butterflies they attract.
