Buddleja ‘Ascot Violet’
This hybrid between B. ‘Lochinch’ and B. ‘Black Knight’ is a chance seedling which cropped up in our garden a decade or more ago. It has the dark violet flowers of ‘Black Knight’ and the neat habit of ‘Lochinch’. If given a good soak after the first flush of flowers is over it will often flower again in the autumn. Tough and drought tolerant it needs a sunny spot to be at its best. We cut it down to 90cm in late winter to promote vigorous new growth and good quality flowers. 180cm tall x 150cm wide.
