It grows to about 5m or 16ft. and blossoms in late spring with fragrant orange flowers that look like little balls or globes. It grows in full sun or partial shade and it is semi-evergreen. It thrives in moist but well-drained soil. It has elliptic leaves, the infusion of the leaves was used in traditional medicine. Buddleja globosa attracts bees and butterflies and looks very unique in any garden.
I am a flower enthusiast and a gardener at heart. Ever since childhood I loved reading about plants and started gardening at an early age. First by helping my father in the garden and later managing a large garden myself in my teen years. I planted and cared for a large number of plants, flowers, and trees both outdoors and in a greenhouse. To this day I enjoy visiting gardens and parks and learning about new and old specimens and varieties of plants.
