Pink Delight Buddleia


My Buddleia (Buddleia davidii 'Pink Delight') just started blooming again.  I finally learned how to do a macro shot on my camera and also something about what aperture is and how to adjust it, so here you go!  Have you grown this?  It's usually called butterfly bush around here. Which plants do you like to use with it?  There are some very pretty purple and red Buddleia, and a yellow one, too.  Lovely.

  2. thanks, scott! i was so excited to finally get around to figuring out some stuff about my camera. i would be interested to know it's possible to grow buddleia successfully in florida. it might need a cold winter, but if not, it would get huge down there i bet. but who needs buddleia when you can grow heliconia!

  5. Buddleia is a pretty flower. I love the colour. It also looks a bit like lantana.
