Buddleia (Buddlejadavidii) is a popular garden plant which is also known as the “Butterfly bush”. It was introduced into the UK from China in the 1890s, and though it has become widely naturalised on waste ground, along railway lines, and in towns, it is often found growing in gardens, completely unprompted.
The familiar,and aesthetically pleasing, purple flowers of Buddleia bloom from June to October, and attract all kinds of butterflies and moths looking for nectar sources, particularly in urban areas. Its winged seeds arespread by the wind,making it easy for the plant to colonise on stony ground.
Buddleia is a very familiar plant that has large, drooping, soft spikes of purple or whiteflowers. It has long, narrow leaves, and the flowers have a honey-like fragrance. Like Japanese Knotweed, Buddleia is a plant that can easily be removed. It is an invasive type of plant and will grow to be slightly unyielding if left unchecked.
