Alandra thank you for that. We have moved away for this district. I enjoyed seeing these plants dancing in the wind. Good luck with your seedlings

Hi again, Tania, just stopped by for another look, -- you were saying you have sandy soil and the shrub just self seeded. Seem to recall that I have read that the butterfly bushes do like sandy soil, infact apparently they survive in poor soils even. Also, we have a couple of seedlings that have self seeded from the butterfly bush that was broken down by the storm a couple winters ago, so we are hoping they will grow quickly.

Thank you Don. They are dancing around in the wind at the moment like a butterfly would

Beautiful flowers Tania, butterfly bush is my guess too. Nice capture, Don

LOL I think it is just something very different. We are very dark sandy soil that may be the difference.

Dont worry your flowers sound way better than mine, wish this one changed colour and had just a little pink here, our soil is very black here, something about where you are must be much better than what we have here.

Hi Alandra and Lorraine. Thank you it is nice to have a name for it. It does grow very fast and has a lovel sent. Maybe mine has something lacking in the soil or the salt spray changes the colours of the flowers

Hi Tania, I think it's called a Lilac, I have one but it dosent change to pink like this one, great shot.

Hi Tania, do these have a nice scent? We have something that looks like this, smells great, - it's called Buddleia here, or Butterfly Bush or Summer Lilac. Our largest one was ruined by the heavy snowfall recently, so DH cut it down. They grow very fast tho' so we'll get another. I'd like one this colour this time.
