B. ‘Castle School’ has large pale lilac panicles with highly fragrant flowers. This cultivar is also relatively early to flower and an impressive sight in late July in the nursery gardens.
A chance seedling found by Martin Hughes-Jones at Castle School in Tiverton, Devon during a parents evening growing in a crack in the playground. It was introduced to the trade in 2004 via Martin’s nursery, Sampford Shrubs.
