Buddleja ‘Longstock Pride’
(Butterfly Bush)

One of Peter Moore's introductions, Buddleja ‘Longstock Pride’ is from the same cross as the rare B. ‘Pride of Hever’ which it closely resembles. The leaves are like B.lindleyana but slightly serrated. The typical Buddleja flowers are bright purple in open panicles and have retained some of the fine crispa scent. It dies down in winter but bursts into life in late March. Sterile flowers, so no seeds are produced.
