I usually have a honeymoon period with new plants in the garden ... then something odd happens and things aren't so sweet between us for reasons only the universe really knows ?
Having made that proclamation .. I can say it isn't so with Buzz Ivory buddleia ... it is a beauty and I would plant loads more if I had the sunny space for it.
It is perfect for cooling down some of the riot of colour in other plants that just party too long and too hard.
They need a calmer take on the area to tone it down a bit and "Buzz" does the job !
"Baby Joe" blooms earlier ..
Thankfully it has a few feet in the ground still.
You have to admit though ... pink is pretty darn perfect in the garden !
