Buddleia davidii Pink Delight


Buddleia davidii Pink Delight  (Buddleia davidii Pink Delight)

Butterfly bush
Carolus Linnaeus named this genus Buddleja and it was never officially changed but the word Buddleia is commonly used now. The name is in honor of Adam Buddle (1662-1715), a botanist from England.
Almost all of the varieties commercially available today are a type of Buddleia davidii, which is from China. They are invasive in some parts of USA.
