Buddleja

Does anyone has grown this woodland plant in a clay soil successfully. I like them but my soil is not sandy at all?
Thanks

    Yes. They're fine, assuming it's had some organic matter added to ensure drainage is adequate.
    I've never had anything but heavy clay. They're perfectly happy in it, and I've had them in every garden. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....


  • I agree with @Fairygirl - altho some of the newer varieties may be a tad picky, just look around - any bit of waste ground, cracks in walls and there is usually a Buddleja growing. 
  • We are in clay soils and the davidii grows well but the globosa is even better and still in flower now in the SW.
