Buddleia at Paponga, near Broadwood, Northland

Paponga Road is an alternative road between Kohukohu and Broadwood, where I saw these tall Buddleias growing beside the road. Bonnie my dog (a Sheltie) offered to sit beside the road to give an idea of scale. The ones on the eastern side of the road have been chopped hard back, but the ones beside Bonnie come from 1 or 2 metres below her as they're on the downhill side. Huge! No flowers or any buds or seeds today (late summer, March) so perhaps it's a winter flowering one?
