Bicolor Butterflybush, Golden Butterflybush
This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
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.
A drought tolerant plant when established, golden butterflybush should be grown in full sun for best results. Attractive to butterflies and bees, the interesting flower color makes it a good addition to the mixed border or cutting garden.
