Buddleja hanging its heads - is this normal?

I have a young buddleja, about three feet tall, planted in June.  I can give it a good drink of an evening, but the following day it's heads will start to droop.  Is this normal, or perhaps due to the prolonged heat?  I don't think it can be thirsty image

    It very likely is thirsty.  Remember its roots will not have gone far into the soil yet as it was planted in June.

  • Thank you Welshonion and Verdun.  I will do that.

  • i  two have a buddleia mine is about two years old. it was a cutting that i was this time it has nether flowered,could it be that the plant is just to young to flower yet.
