Description

Known as the Karoo Sage this shrub is tolerant of temperatures between -5 and +30 degrees C. Perfect for hot and frosty Karoo and Free State gardens. Although the flowers are not scented their bright yellow stands out in lovely contrast with the bluish grey foliage. This Buddleja grows beautifully in a mild climate too
