Buddleja 'Lochinch' (Butterfly Bush)


Buddleja 'Lochinch' (Butterfly Bush)

Fragrant violet-blue flowers all summer


Much maligned for its habit of colonising railway sidings, buddleja can be a fabulous addition to a sunny border, with dramatic, fragrant flowers that are attractive to butterflies and other beneficial insects. Pruned hard in spring, this variety produces clusters of sweetly scented, orange- eyed, violet blue flower spikes on arching stems that last for weeks. The grey-green pointed leaves mature to deep green and may be retained during milder winters. Remove faded flower- spikes after flowering and the plant is likely to produce a second flush.


  • Position: full sun
