This little-known obscure Chinese native butterfly bush species has shiny green leaves, cinnamon trunks, and graceful 2' long pendulous panicles of medium-lavender flowers in summer...a hummingbird favorite. Our clone of Buddleia lindleyana came from giant specimens in the Bolivia, NC, garden of the late Francis Marion Galloway, where they have grown since the 1860s. Buddleia lindleyana is our only buddleia that is not cut to the ground each year. We limbed up our specimen as a walk-underneath feature...a truly spectacular species which deserves much wider use. Its only bad habit is being stoloniferous, and that seems to slow slightly with age.
