The cutting I took from my friend's Buddleia last year has two flowers 🙌🏼 not sure which variety it is (it looks darker in real life, think it may be Black Knight 🤔)

Isn't it Lexi?! 💕 it's a bit deeper than it shows here, but very rich - just compared it with Jason's Black Knight and I don't think it's that one, I'll have to keep looking 👀@Lexijane

Doing well. I've never tried cuttings of mine. My flowers are tiny this year, well compared to last year anyway 😊

No, purple and red is hard to capture Lexi. My Clematis is a prime example...always comes out much pinker looking which is a shame as it's a gorgeous deep purple! 🙄😏 @lexijane

Thanks Sue. I was proud of myself that I'd manage to get them to take - before I realised they'll grow pretty much anywhere without any help! 😂 still, its brightening up the pot in front of the shed! 👍🏼 wonder why your flowers are smaller this year? 🤔 @susanhumphrey333
