(Bicolor Butterflybush, Golden Butterflybush)

Bicolor butterflybush is a hybrid of Buddleja weyeriana that was selected by Michael Dirr from openly pollinated B. 'Honeycomb' plants at the test gardens at the University of Georgia. Its lance-shaped leaves are a glossy deep green and appear in spring on gently arching branches. The fragrant, yellow and raspberry red flowers are borne in clusters from summer to autumn and removing spent flowers will encourage continued blooming.
