Cultivar 'Castle School'
Origin Tiverton, Devon

Buddleja davidii 'Castle School' is a recent introduction, cloned from a seedling discovered growing in the wall of the eponymous Castle School in Tiverton, Devon, England, by nurseryman Martin Hugh-Jones and introduced to commerce in 2004, [1] by his nursery, Sampford Shrubs. [1]


'Castle School' has large pale-lilac panicles of highly fragrant flowers. The cultivar is also relatively early to flower, and said to resemble 'Lochinch' but with superior colour in both flower and foliage. [1]


'Castle School' is rare in cultivation, and is not known to have been introduced to North America or continental Europe. A specimen is grown as part of the NCCPG national collection held by Longstock Park Nursery [2] Hardiness: USDA zones 5–9.[1]
