This well known cultivar is still as popular as ever for its superb violet-purple blooms and their deliciously sweet fragrance. Buddleja davidii 'Empire Blue' was one of the first blue varieties commercially available and remains a worthy specimen shrub for sunny borders despite the many new introductions of blue Buddlejas. A large deciduous shrub with an upright habit, it has narrow grey-green leaves with silvery-white undersides that cloak the gently arching stems. Height: 200cm (78"). Spread: 250cm (98").

Plant Buddleja in garden borders in any moist, well drained garden soil, in full sun or semi-shade. Alternatively grow buddleja plants in patio containers using soil based compost such as John Innes No.3.
Feed and water container-grown plants regularly. Buddleja planted directly into borders will require only occasional attention. In spring, prune Buddleja plants back to a permanent low framework of 3 or 4 buds from the base of the plant. Deadhead faded buddleja flowers to prolong the flowering season.
