I have found this to be a very dependable plant. It grows super quick, the smell is heavenly, and isn't too fussy about soil conditions or types of soil. All that said, it does NOT like to be transplanted. If you're going to purchase one, buy a SMALL plant. Big plants will NOT grow in my experience! I tried with about 10 different buddleias and every single one of them died. Smaller plants (like 1gal pots or smaller) seem to do OK, though.
