Hardy Hybrids

Buzz™ Hot Raspberry

A new twist on a much-loved garden favourite, ‘Buzz’™ is the world’s first patio Buddleja! These attractive, compact plants are loved by bees and butterflies, but won’t take over your garden.

Buddleja Buzz™ Hot Raspberry is easy to grow and problem-free with a super long-flowering period. Perfectly proportioned for patio pots and smaller gardens. Height and spread: 120cm (47″). (Thompson & Morgan quote)

Over the past 20 years well over 150 new hybrids have come to the market, many raised in the USA.
More of these introductions will be planted in the collection this year. Currently this plant is available for sale in the plant centre but has not been assessed for reliability, hardness, habit and flowering.

The description is taken from the marketing agents’ promotion material and has not been verified by the collection holder.
