    It's a Buddleia.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Is t it a bit early for buddlias? 
    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor. 

  • I'm so sorry Bob, but we do have buddlea too, it's not the right leaf or flower and yes, too early. It's very much a lilac type flower, slight scent but the leaves are elongated

    I have a Korean lilac that has leaves different to the normal lilac leaves, but I'm not sure they match yours

    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
  • Hi Pete, I did wonder if that's what it is. Thankyou
