- Buddleja Longstock Pride - Very free flowering - purple flowers in Late Summer / Autumn - attracts butterflies - easy to grow - Hardy
Buddleja Longstock Pride is a stunning hybrid of B. lindleyana with lightly silvered foliage and an upright habit, in late Summer and Autumn masses of long panicles of pale purple flowers are produced on stems from each leaf bud. Attracts butterflies and in my garden is a favourite of Humming Bird Hawmoths.
Buddleja Longstock Pride is a useful variety which does not get too big, for best results cut back hard in April to produce vigorous upright stems. Thrives in most conditions as long is its not too wet. Bred by Peter Moore from Longstock Park Nursery, www.bredbypetermoore.co.uk
