Features

notes

Wisteria Lane is a new and particularly lovely variety. As its name suggests, the soft purple flowers – unusually large, up to 50cm in length – are pendant, and hang elegantly from the branches like wisteria blooms.

Insights

Buddleias are extremely attractive to pollinating insects, with copious nectar, which is why they are often known as the butterfly bush. Compact (for a buddleia) robust and fast growing, Wisteria Lane is also useful as a screening plant.
