Buddleja davidii
Purple Champion
    This is a plant we found on the nursery growing as a chance seedling, I discovered this one myself and selected it out for it's naturally dwarf habit and weeping flower habit, it also has rather attractive, long purple flowers with yellow centers to the florets. I have named it Purple Champion, to attach our name to it (having Champion as my last name has it's pluses!) and this continues the selection of plants discovered at our nursery, all starting with Caryopteris Jason named after me.

    This is being released for sale for the first time in 2021!
      Grows to 1.3M and has a spread of 1M
      Growing advice:

        Buddleja’s are extremely useful shrubs for the garden, they offer wonderful flowers through the Summer, are easy to grow and very beneficial to insects. They are often viewed as large plants but there are many different species and varieties that offer all manner of flower types & colours as well as size.  The flowers are covered with butterflies in mid to late Summer and the yellow varieties are particularly attractive to beneficial insects, this can offer a huge interest to the garden, it can be a real joy relaxing in the garden with a Buddleja in full flower.
