A beautiful new Buddleia for gardens of all sizes, ‘High Five Purple’ is a wonderful dwarf variety with all the features of its full-sized relatives, but in a miniature!
Bright green foliage gives rise to an abundance of large, upright flower spikes from spring until autumn, each one densely packed with hundreds of individual double purple flowers that carry a sweet, honey-like fragrance.
Although Buddleia are renowned for being invasive by self-seeding freely, this is not the case with ‘High Five Purple’ because it produces very little seed, and what seeds do appear won’t usually germinate, so no more picking out seedlings from your flower borders!
Happiest in full sun ‘High Five Purple’ will also grow in partial shade and will remain neat and compact wherever you choose to plant it. With its long flowering season, it’s a great border plant and is particularly good when grown in a decorative pot, looking like a flower arrangement that you’ve just finished creating! Try planting it amongst blue flowering plants for a cool, calming effect, or with orange and yellow for a popping colour contrast.
Like all Buddleia, this striking hardy perennial will be a magnet for bees and butterflies all summer long, and the flowers are great for cutting too. All in all an incredibly impressive plant!
Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant and growing to a height and spread of 80cm (2½ft).
