Someone gave us the pink flowering bush as a stick.
The purple is rampant in a London garden and I'm wondering if it would grow in Greece.
Many thanks.

Hi hampan, try Buddleja davidii for the first one and Lagerstroemia indica for the second. We have a white variety of the Buddleja growing here in Cyprus, it gets a bit of shade and benefits from the irrigation to a nearby fruit tree.

Cyprus Branch Head. Gardens in a field 40 m above sea level with reasonably fertile clay soil.
