Weeping sagewood (Treursaliehout) is a small, evergreen tree with an informal, shrub-like growth form. It grows at an average rate and is known for its arching branches and drooping leaves. Trees with such an appearance often have  "weeping" as a prefix to their popular names. (Think Weeping brides-bush, Weeping wattle, Weeping willow, Weeping bush willow) Buddleja auriculata's leaves have a glossy tint on the top surface and fine whitish hairs on the under surface, giving the tree a discolorous look. The species has non-invasive roots and is quite water wise. Its sweetly scented flowers are large for the genus and are borne in dense heads.  

A few gardening ideas:

Weeping sagewood is an easy grower, requiring very little (if any) maintenance.  Its pendulous form and discolorous leaves will provide a striking contrast in the garden, and its flowers are a bonus.   This species is highly recommended for planting in a small  garden (but not in a very small garden). It is fairly frost hardy and will survive temperatures as low as -2 degrees Celsius.

Value to honeybees: Nectar, N1-2;  Pollen, P2;   Flowering months 4-9, (5-7).   (See  blog-post "The bee-value of South Africa's trees" for an explanation of codes)
