Buddleja officinalis B. officinalis with Red Admiral. Scientific classification Kingdom: Plantae (unranked): Angiosperms (unranked): Eudicots (unranked): Asterids Order: Lamiales Family: Scrophulariaceae Genus: Buddleja Species: B. officinalis Binomial name Buddleja officinalis Maxim. Buddleja officinalis is a deciduous early-spring flowering shrub native to west Hubei, Sichuan, and Yunnan provinces in China [1]: it was introduced to western cultivation in 1908.[2] In the UK it is often grown as a nectar source for vanessid butterflies such as the Peacock which have emerged from hibernation.[3] Contents 1 Description 2 Cultivation 3 Suppliers 4 References Description B. officinalis largely resembles the commoner B. davidii in shape and size, growing to < 2.5 m in height. The honey-scented mauve inflorescences are shorter (< 8 cm) than those of davidii, and more conical. The leaves are lanceolate, < 15 cm long, softly pubescent and rich green in colour (grey underneath).[1] Cultivation The shrub is not fully frost hardy, able to survive temperatures no lower than - 10 C., and is best grown against a south-facing wall.[1] The shrub should be cut back hard each year immediately after flowering in spring. Propagation by softwood cuttings is easily accomplished, using pure vermiculite as a rooting medium. Suppliers B. officinalis is in commerce in Europe.
