Purple Butterfly Bush


Buddleja davidii The name is confusing
since it is named after English botanist Adam Buddle and which
should have translated to Buddleia. Linnaeus however wrote
it as Buddleja and never changed it. Armand David was a French
naturalist. Butterflies flock to these bush/trees. I started with 2 and
now have 6 (3 in the wildflower gardens just appeared).
