I know that buddleja grows easily in most places but here in the chalky soil of the downs it seems to excel. Every house has one and the bushes get to 6 foot tall within a year or two if not cut back. They also grow in the most unusual colours. As well as the standard lilac they come in black, dark mauve and white. No one can recall planting them.
