Buddleja davidii

Peace

B. ‘Peace’ is a vigorous shrub producing long slightly arching shoots bearing terminal flowers of fragrant white with deep yellow eyes, complemented by long pointed light green leaves. It certainly has garden merit but in my opinion I prefer  B. ‘White Cloud’ or B. ‘White  Profusion’.
