Hardy Hybrids

Dreaming Purple

The Dreaming Series of Buddleja have been bred to be compact and trailing making them suitable for pots and containers. The purple flowers are borne in late summer and are attractive to butterflies and beneficial insects.



The Dreaming series were developed by Peter Podaras at Hines Nursery, California, USA to produce a range of sterile or low fertility hybrids.
