I guess it was buddleia asiatica which blooms in spring with fragrant flowers. Will take around 10 cuttings next week from the large specimen in lawrence gardens lahoreM Farooq wrote:> My Petria blooms profusly, but I have never seen a seed in last 10 years.
That is exactly what I was wondering. My Petrea, the purple one, never bore a single seed. The flowers used to simple drop off. So did Buddelia. Both of them don't exist anymore due to negligence by others (I was away) and I could not find Buddelia again. It was a white variety of Buddelia from Shalimar nurseries it bore flowers like crazy through out the year and the honey bees wouldn't let someone come close to it.

I also got a chinese variety of buddleia probably buddleia lindleyana but not sure yet. More heat tolerant than davidii but less heat tolerant than asiatica.
