Buddleja salviifolia is a bushy, semi-evergreen shrub originating from East and South Africa. It has an arching habit, with finely wrinkled, lance-shaped, grey-green leaves. Its small flowers are fragrant, pale mauve with an orange throat, and produced on panicles in autumn/winter. They are very attractive to pollinators. Also known as Sagewood and South African Sagewood, it is best grown by a warm, sunny wall in a mild location where it will produce better flowering. It needs well-drained soil in full sun with shelter from cold winds. It is suitable for city, coastal and wildlife gardens as well as flower beds and borders.
