Butterfly Bush or Buddleja Flowering Plant

I love flowers and the sweet smell they give.  I am usually not concerned about formal names, however,  I looked it up just for curiosity. 

According  to Wikipedia,  "Buddleja, often misspelled Buddleia but commonly known as the Butterfly Bush, is a genus of flowering plants. The generic name bestowed by Linnaeus honours the Reverend Adam Buddle (1662–1715), a botanist and rector in Essex, England, but who could never have seen a plant of the genus. Buddleja is now included in the figwort family, Scrophulariaceae; it had earlier been classified in either the Loganiaceae or in a family of its own, the Buddlejaceae."

 Luke 12: 27-28 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?
