Buddleja davidii 'Blue Horizon' is a cultivar introduced to commerce in the UK by Bob Brown, Cotswold Garden Flowers, in the early 20th century. It was accorded the RHS Award of Garden Merit (record 677) in 2010,[1] by virtue of its superior sapphire-blue hue, relegating 'Empire Blue' to the Sunset List for rescission of its AGM. [2]
