Buddleia Japonica survives.
By mistake I ordered Buddleia Japonica seeds last year. I winter sowed them, they germinated and became part of the neglected bunch. (I always seem to have some containers that get neglected during the gardening season...)
Autumn arrived and I finally decided I needed to do something with these two containers. The plants were not big and one container was a 2 liter pop bottle and the other container was a plastic windshield wash bottle. I did not expect much after reading that these were not winter hardy in my region. Tucked them up against the house and threw some shredded leaves on them, barely covering them.
We had the coldest and longest winter in decades, but these little things survived.
I'll be planting a couple near the area where they stayed all winter and have called a few friends with microclimate areas on their property to be foster parents to some of these special ones!!
Let's see what comes of this!
