Buddleja globosa, aka orange ball buddleja, is named for its globe-shaped orange flowers that appear from late spring through to summer. The fragrant blooms are showy but different from most buddleja, the balls only 2cm wide. The plant itself grows up to 5m high, but it’s easily kept lower if trimmed.

This plant grows in full sun or part shade in well-drained soil. It’s available from Marshwood Gardens.
