Thank you Andrewr, I would never have thought of a buddlia, I was too busy looking at the flowers rather than the leaves.

Seaburngirl, we have a local park with at least 4 of these buddlias in, I was only down there yesterday, (Sun) think i'll have to go visit again this afternoon. : )

Thank you very much, Gail xxx

If you like this, you'll love Buddlaeia weyeriana 'Golden Glow'. Its a hybrid of globosa and davidii. When mine's in flower I'll upload a photo, hopefully when the butterflies are all over it.

You can grow B. globosa from seeds. We have one appear a fair distance from its parent plant. Sadly we will have to remove it as it is far too big for its chosen place.
