This popular genus of about 100 plants comes from all over the world but none are native to the UK! The familiar Buddleja davidii was introduced in the 1890s and soon populated areas of waste- and scrub-land as it outdid native plants in its attractiveness to pollinating insects.

The ‘Butterfly Bush’ is a feeding post for at least 10 different garden species with its often highly scented flowers in pink, purple, red and white. Visitors can include bees, hoverflies and Small Tortoiseshell, Painted Lady and Peacock butterflies
