Welcome to the Buddleja Garden Website!

Information on all things Buddleja or Buddleia

The Buddleja Garden is a website about Buddlejas with original content and aims to provide useful information for both gardeners and plantsmen. There are pages on species, hybrids and cultivars that I have grown particularly those that are hardy (or nearly hardy) in the UK. There are pages on how to look after your Buddleja and grow new ones from seed or cuttings. And some handy links to National Collections and other useful sites.

There is an ongoing comprehensive list of B. davidii cultivars and hybrids and a complete list of species Buddleja. I also keep a Buddleja Diary with new entries each month keeping track of Buddlejas through the year. I have just added pages on the latest hybrids called Lo and Behold and Flutterby, a work in progress as I have only just started growing some of them. Mostly they are small, non-invasive Buddlejas.

Any suggestions or questions, then please e-mail me.
