A rare form of Buddleia which produces large hanging pale pink flowers with white centers.
An unusual variety with large flowers different to the normal Buddleia. It has quite a large growing habit but unlike that of B.davidii, the leaves are fleshier and darker and the stems have a squared shape to them. The growth habit is sprawling but it can be trained to a wall or shaped to a nice rounded shrub. Responds well to pruning in Winter much like any other Buddleia.
Young plants (over their first Winter) need to be protected with fleece to protect them from frost, once it is 2 years old Buddleia colvilei has proved to be hardy planted in two locations at the nursery and this includes recorded temperatures of more than -10!
Hardy when mature, protect young plants.
Grown in a 2 Litre pot ready for planting.
Size on delivery: Ht 30cm W 15cm
