Buddleja davidii Franchet (Synonym. Buddleia davidii; common name butterfly bush) is a perennial, semi-deciduous, multi-stemmed shrub that is resident in gardens and disturbed areas. Since its introduction to the United Kingdom from China in the late 1800s, B. davidii has become an important component in horticulture and human culture. Despite its popularity as a landscape plant, B. davidii is considered problematic because of its ability to naturalize outside of gardens and rapidly invade and…

INVASION OF RIPARIAN HABITATS BY BUDDLEJA DAVIDII: A CASE STUDY FROM THE NORTHERN APENNINES
TLDR
A case of massive invasion in the valley of a montane stream of the Tusco-Emilian Apennines, started around the year 1990, indicates a negative impact on the diversity of local riparian vegetation.
utcrossing breeding system does not compromise invasiveness in uddleja davidii usan
Introductions of alien plant species are often likely to consist of a few individuals. Thus, invasion success may strongly depend on their reproductive biology. A high number of self-compatible

Experimental Research Informs Control of Mexican Petunia (Ruellia simplex) in Natural Areas and Home-Gardens
TLDR
Results from recent Mexican petunia control studies are compiled to construct preliminary management recommendations and it is recommended that natural area managers apply glyphosate in the fall for the greatest post-control regeneration of native species.
Natural hybridization between two butterfly bushes in Tibet: dominance of F1 hybrids promotes strong reproductive isolation
TLDR
The presence of mainly F 1 hybrids can successfully impede gene flow and thus maintain species boundaries in parental species in a typical distribution of Buddleja, i.e. in disturbed habitats.
Pre-adaptations and shifted chemical defences provide Buddleja davidii populations with high resistance against antagonists in the invasive range
TLDR
It is suggested that the diverse cocktail of chemical compounds, potentially together with physical leaf features, may provide this plant species with an effective defence arsenal against antagonists, and advantageous pre-adaptations and/or shifted profiles of the chemical bouquet may contribute to the success of invasive plants.

Ecological role of buddleia (Buddleja davidii) in streambeds in te Urewera National Park
TLDR
Buddleia quickly displaces primary native colonisers, herbaceous and woody, where it occurs en masse, accelerating successions to forest on fresh alluvium by replacing longer-lived species such as K. ericoides.
The invasive shrub Buddleja davidii performs better in its introduced range
TLDR
Strong evidence for increased plant vigour in the introduced range is found: plants in invasive populations were significantly taller and had thicker stems, larger inflorescences, and heavier seeds than plants in native populations.
On the perils of mycorrhizal status lists: the case of Buddleja davidii
TLDR
The use of mycorrhizal checklists for analysis of plant traits and evolution needs to be undertaken with care to ensure the validity of underlying data.

Invasive Buddleja davidii allocates more nitrogen to its photosynthetic machinery than five native woody species
TLDR
No differences were detected among the eight populations of B. davidii in any of the traits evaluated, indicating that the invader did not evolve during range expansion, thus providing support to the general-purpose genotype hypothesis.
First Report of Tomato ringspot virus in Butterfly Bush (Buddleia davidii).
TLDR
The line pattern symptom displayed by these plants was atypical of the mosaic, mottling, and leaf deformation seen when buddleias are infected with Alfalfa mosaic virus (AMV) or Cucumber mosaicirus (CMV) (2,4).
Contrasting impacts of a native and an invasive exotic shrub on flood-plain succession
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Buddleja dominates early succession and accumulates P whereas Coriaria dominates later succession and Accumulates N.
Can population modelling predict potential impacts of biocontrol? a case study using Cleopus japonicus on Buddleja davidii.
TLDR
Simulation of the population dynamics of the weed biocontrol agent as if it was being released in a non-limiting monoculture of its host plant, the weed buddleia, in the central North Island of New Zealand predicts that only two generations of Cleopus japonicus can be expected per year and that overwintering survival is critical to population build-up.
