Buddleja davidii

Longstock Pink

B. ‘Longstock Pink’ is another Longstock introduction.

This is my attempt to improve B. davidii ‘Pink Pearl’ that has pale lilac pink flowers. B. ‘Longstock Pink’ is a softer pink, total different to B. ‘Pink Delight’

It is not commercially available but can be propagated to order.
