'Border Beauty' is a dense, relatively large-leafed shrub growing to a height of 2.0 m. The cultivar is readily identified by its rich crimson-pink panicles, 15 – 20 cm long, borne on dark red stems; the leaves are deep green. There is strong repeat flowering, encouraged by deadheading, well into autumn.[2]

Cultivation[edit]

'Border Beauty' is uncommonly cultivated in Europe and the USA. In the UK it is included in the NCCPG national buddleja collection held by Longstock Park Nursery near Stockbridge, Hampshire.[2] Hardiness: USDA zones 5 – 9.[1]
