Buddleja 'Orange Scepter'
|Origin||University of Arkansas, USA|
Buddleja 'Orange Scepter' is a highly unusual American hybrid cultivar raised by Dr Jon Lindstrom of the University of Arkansas from a crossing of two South American species, Buddleja stachyoides and Buddleja tubiflora. 
'Orange Scepter' grows to a height of 2.5 m, and bears 30 cm - long panicles of bright orange flowers resembling Leonotis, complemented by large, 28 cm - long Verbascum-like felted leaves. The shrub flowers almost continually throughout the year, but most prolifically from fall to spring.
