In August-September there are many plants that begin to prepare for the autumn that is to come. However, there are many other plants that choose to flourish precisely on these dates and in autumn. They are known as late flowering plants. If you are going to celebrate a special event, or simply would like to decorate your garden (or balcony, patio or terrace) with flowers, this article is for you.

They are very adaptable, so much so that they can be both in pots and in the garden, as long as they have direct light so they can grow well.
Our buddleia They are beautiful shrubs that attract various pollinating insects, such as butterflies or bees. Its flowers can be pink or white.
