Buddleja 'Silver Anniversary' is a hardy, evergreen shrub with fragrant white flowers that are magnets for butterflies. It has striking felty grey foliage, and a dense growth habit. Once established, it is drought tolerant. It has few pests and diseases, and is an easy care garden plant. It likes a position in full sun, and prefers well drained soils. It can also be grown in a large container. It grows to around a metre and a half high and wide, and will benefit from a yearly prune after winter to keep the habit compact.
