Butterfly bush


Butterfly Bush (Buddleja Davidii): in traditional Chinese medicine, it was used to treat wounds as an antibacterial agent, as well as against liver and bronchial disorders and as a sedative and anaesthetic.
This plant has been attributed with anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, anti-microbial, diuretic and soothing properties.


Fun fact: the vulgar name butterfly bush comes from the fact that its prolonged, fragrant blooming throughout the summer facilitates the continuous presence of butterflies.
