Small buddleias

18 February 2013

If you haven’t got a buddleia in your garden, do try to make space for one – they really are great for butterflies and moths. There is a new variety on the market now which does not grow very big – only about knee height, but it still attracts butterflies – the photo to the right shows one beside a bench we’ve got by our pond, which gives you some idea of its full size.  There are currently three colours available – lavender, magenta and ivory – I think the one in the photo is magenta.

If you’ve got room for a big one (and remember, they can be chopped back hard every year), I’ll talk about the best ones for butteflies in a later blog.
