I see magnificant buddleia specimens growing 'wild' in the most unlikely places, totally uncared for, whereas my one, well looked after and pruned by the book has lots of healthy leaf growth but only a few straggly flowers. I'm not as fan of buddleia, but I bought it for the butterflies and it frustrates me that it does not put on at least as good a show as the 'wild' ones.
Is this a plant that thrives on neglect? In other words, what am I doing wrong?
