B. ‘By The Way’ is a large shrub with slightly arching shoots and pendulous fragrant white flowers with deep yellow eyes, complemented by long pointed light green leaves. It is planted it in front of Buddleja albiflora in the border by the Tennis Court.
A chance seedling raised in the garden of the National Collection Holder of Clematis montana, Mrs V Le May Neville-Parry.
In the summer of 2017 Mrs Neville-Parry visited our Buddleja collection with a branch of a white flowered B. davidii which did not match any of the cultivars in the collection.
Following the visit to Longstock I went to her garden and decided it was completely different and worthy of a name. By The Way is the name of Mrs Neville-Parry’s house.
