The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar

of Buddleja plant, botanically known as Buddleja hybrid and hereinafter referred to by the name ‘Burncross’.

The new Buddleja plant originated from an open-pollina tion in an outdoor nursery in Moor House, North Yorks, United Kingdom, of an unnamed selection of Buddleja hybrid, not patented, as the female, or seed, parent with an unknown selection of Buddleja hybrid as the male, or pollen, parent. The new Buddleja plant was discovered and selected by the Inventor as a single ?owering plant within the progeny of the stated open-pollination in a controlled outdoor nursery
