The Bad News

Buddleia grows quickly and has lots of small seeds which are widely spread by the wind. Buddleia can also tolerate extreme conditions, particularly poor soil, and will readily form dense infestations. It is a particularly serious weed in riverbeds as it can change the water flows and displace all other vegetation. Buddleia is also reduces bio diversity by out competing other plants. It is often found along railway embankments, on roof tops and even growing out of brickwork. It is very well adapted to city landscapes.
