Buddleja or Buddleia more commonly, is a genus containing over 140 deciduous, evergreen and semi-evergreen shrubs and some trees endemic to Africa, Asia and the Americas. They have been widely cultivated for their attractive and scented flowers, coloured in shades of purple, pink and cream and are known as butterfly bushes. Most grow no taller than 5m, they are often considered invasive. Frequently they are found along rocky railways in the UK, having escaped from gardens and adapted well to this environment.
