Buddleja salviifolia

Buddleja salviifolia
A South African species, but don't let that put you off - this is a surprisingly hardy shrub for a sheltered sunny wall. The violet-scented purple flowers are produced in late spring among good quality felted foliage on a medium-sized shrub.

Prune it periodically in summer to keep it compact.

it seems that your Buddleja salvifolia is in fact Buddleja myriantha

I'm no expert on the group but I'm in regular communication with this guy who is - and he says "It is sometimes sold mis-identified as B.myriantha, which is a totally different Asian Buddleja."
