Guess What

This morning I have another plant for you to guess the identity.

This video shows you all round one flower from this large garden bush which has just about finished flowering now. When in full flower it was an attraction for many different types of bee but, alas, no butterflies this year.


  1. I'm guessing a Buddleia globosa?

  2. Hi John, I think it may be Buddleia Globosa. If so it is very disappointing to read it hasn't attracted the butterflies this year. Sadly though I am not surprised, the lack of butterflies is very worrying. I read a while ago that numbers are already 20% down this year and I dread to think how this will subsequently affect them next year!

  3. Buddleia, they don't grow here very well. As far as butterflies try the original milkweed, i ummm "seeded it" the wild way, the kind with the big purple spicey smelling floppy flowers. The butterflies love it.

  4. I was going to say Buddleia too...honest! but the butterflies won't come out here until it stops raining.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
