Welcome to the Buddleja Garden!

Information on all things Buddleja or Buddleia

The Buddleja Garden is a website of original content about the genus Buddleja, which aims to provide useful information for gardeners, plantsmen and botanists. The site is designed to offer comprehensive and practical information on the various Buddlejas grown in gardens. There are pages on the different species, as well as pages about garden cultivars and hybrids of Buddleja davidii. There is a comprehensive listing of the B. davidii cultivars and hybrids, which is probably the most complete and up-to-date list of garden cultivars available.

I have grown many of the plants described on my own plot and I tend to focus on those plants that are hardy (or nearly hardy) in the UK climate.

There are pages on how to look after Buddleja, how to prune, and how to grow new ones from seed or cuttings. There's also a page with some handy links to National Collections and other useful sites.

I keep a Buddleja Diary, which I started in 2011, with new entries throughout the growing season about my own plants and any Buddleja news I come across.

Scroll down or use the top-menu to see the information The Buddleja Garden website has to offer.

The Buddleja Garden accepts no advertising and is cookie-free, although The Buddleja Garden is not responsible for the content or cookies of third-party links. Sites on the internet are too often loaded with annoying ads, which both distract from the browsing experience and eat up your bandwidth with material you don’t want. I’ve taken the decision not to go down this road because I hate click-bait and intrusive ads as much as anyone.

The Buddleja Garden is not linked to a commercial nursery and does not offer products for sale or paid services. But this website has to be funded, and the cost of webspace has increased massively in recent years.
