Here am attaching few images of beautiful shrub Buddleja madagascariensis (Buddlejaceae) shot from university campus in February 2019…!!!!

great’ i esp like numbers 4 and 5 plant habit and the last one for the veins at eh back look quite unique. so much that paleobotanists may like it and the of rhe various shades of colors changing as each flower ages. do these buddelias get visited by any particular butterflies? i wonder





AP1-Plant for id from Ambala Cantt Haryana: (mixed thread): 8 images.

please help me to identify this plant and its family…
photographs taken on 9 may 2012
place-ambala cantt
month- may


height-about 8-9 feet

I hope Budleia sp.

In my opinion this is Buddleia sp. from Buddleiaceae, an ornamental plant…may be B. crispa.

To me appears close to images at Buddleja madagascariensis Lam.

seems so






Requesting to please ID this shrub captured in MNP, Mumbai in Apr 2014.
No flowers or fruits were seen.

Looks like Buddleia 

Thank you … for the feedback… Will wait for the flowering season.

This Buddleia will probably bear yellow flowers.

May be Buddleja madagascariensis Lam. (Cultivated)
