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. There are sections on various species, hybrids and garden cultivars. Most of the plants described I have personally grown and I am particularly interested in those that are hardy (or nearly hardy) in the UK climate. There are pages on how to look after your Buddleja and how to grow new ones from seed or cuttings. There's also a page of some handy links to National Collections and other useful sites.

There is a comprehensive listing of B. davidii cultivars and hybrids, and a page listing the different species of Buddleja.

I keep a Buddleja Diary with new entries each month of the growing season keeping track of Buddlejas through the year.

Scroll down or use the top-menu to see the Buddleja Garden pages available.
