                You always post such eclectic selections of plants @NigelJ, fascinating stuff! :) Is the buddleia hardy and does it attract insects? :scratch:

                  I understand the Buddleja is hardy down to about -10°C once established.
                  As for insects yes it does, just not butterflies.
