Buddleia nivea

5th July 2014

A small growing species densely covered in fluffy white wool. Introduced to cultivation from the Yantze basin by Ernest Wilson in 1901.
I was given a rooted cutting and planted it in the Agave house where it would be dry in the winter for fear that it would drown in a white woolly coat. In the event it grew rather too vigorously and rapidly exceeded the 2m headroom. I decided to lift it and try to move it before the situation became impossible, accepting that Buddleia hate disturbance. I took a number of cuttings but unfortunately they all failed and the main plant died.
I had it for a few years and enjoyed it enormously. If I get another chance I will try again.
