Hello everyone, I am back with another question.
What is the name of this plant? The stems are very brittle, break easily.


  • Possibly a dwarf Buddleja  (Buddleja 'Buzz' series)

    The leaves do look similar to a buddleja but it wont like living in a pot.

    I thought it might be sage?

    Hello Everyone, Thank you for your suggestions. I think it may be a dwarf buddleia. We had a large buddleia before and the leaves do look familiar, never thought about it being that though. I probably have to cut it down a bit now.
    Thank you all so much.

    I agree with Cistus.... I'm not seeing that as a Buddleia..

    I’d go with Cistus as well.

    And, if it is, be careful if you prune. They don't like being pruned.

    Hello everyone, thank you so much for all your very helpful comments. I go with the Cistus-deciders, looking at other pictures it looks more like a cistus than a buddleia.  Thank you for the advice not to prune it, I will put the pot back into the sunny spot too.
    Now waiting for the flowers.....
    Grateful to you all for putting in the thoughts and the time.
