If you thought that buddlejas were, as I once heard them described, "in the top rank of second rate shrubs", then think again. This RHS guide reveals some hidden gems.

Following the introduction chapter one looks at the Species, chapter two the Hybrids and Cultivars. Successive chapters consider Care and Cultivation with eleven different headings such as soil, feeding, pruning, pest and diseases; Propagation with four sections; and Wildlife Attracted to Buddlejas. There are also sections: Where to See Buddlejas and and Where to Buy Buddlejas, both international in scope.

The plant descriptions are informative and interesting to read, and often include the authors personal thoughts on the value of the particular plant. The books contains 86 colour photographs showing many of the plants.

This is an invaluable and very readable guide to both the plants and how to grow them. If nothing else this book is bound to convince you that there are quite a few buddlejas worth growing, written by an keen buddleja grower (he holds the national collection of Buddleja) it is hard not to infected with his enthusiasm.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0881926884, Hardcover)

This authoritative book provides the first comprehensive coverage of the popular and varied genus Buddleja. Buddlejas are wonderful garden plants whose tolerance of drought, many soil conditions, and common pests ensures them a place in every garden. Highly attractive to butterflies, moths, and other insects, the flowers of buddlejas come in a huge range of shapes and colors. This book provides valuable clarification of the confusion over the naming of Buddleja species and hybrids, details the diversity of the genus, and introduces gardeners to the spectacular quality of the flowers. It is ideal for collectors and enthusiasts, as well as wildlife and natural-style gardeners.
