Another Year, Another New Buddleja

1st January 2019

The flood of new varieties shows no sign of abating. Due to be available from March, Buddleja 'Butterfly Towers is a new variety from Thompson & Morgan with a uniquely upright and narrow growth habit, unlike the Buzz series or any of the other diminutive hybrids. The flowers look a fairly average size and colour (mauve-purple), so it is the ability to grow in a narrow space that is the unique selling point. From T&M's own breeding programme, this is possibly a chance by-product of the intensive Buzz development project, which grows several thousand new seedlings every year.
