1. Beautiful - they have a very pretty purple flower - wow I'm such a girl.
2. Unsightly and weed like. This is often the state I see them in.
Well, in my garden I have one of these bushy plants and it's grown about 75 ft in the last few days. I commented to Mrs TF that we really do need to cut it back as it was approaching the washing line.
And then it rained.
So now it's beyond the washing line and making a concerted effort to get to the other side of the garden, into the neighbour's garden and then on to conquer the world...
I wonder if it's playing a game of Risk with some other Buddleia somewhere..
