Buddleja lindleyana grows to about 10 feet with arching stems and smooth foliage. The flower spikes are somewhat smaller with individual flowers more loosely held than the B. davidii cultivars. Each inflorescence curves beguilingly upwards at the tips. The petals are lavender in colour with darker purple tips. Lovely!
