Our 1994 introduction originated as a seedling found in 1984 by Jack Potter at the Wister Garden in Swarthmore, PA. We fell in love with this different color shade, almost a clear violet. B. 'Potters Purple' is a very vigorous, upright deer resistant grower with very long, fragrant flower panicles. At Mike Dirr's University of Georgia buddleia trials, it has consistently ranked near the very top of 60+ trialed cultivars!
