BUDDLEJA x weyeriana 'Honeycomb'
Golden Butterflybush, Honeycomb Butterflybush
Sunny and vigorous, ‘Honeycomb’ offers dense globose clusters of beautiful golden flowers all summer.
A hybrid of Buddleja davidii and B. globosa, golden butterflybush is a vigorous medium-sized deciduous shrub with gently arching branches lined with large glossy deep green leaves with silvery undersides. In the heat of summer it offers golden yellow flower clusters at the ends of its branches. These are fragrant and attractive to butterflies and bees.
Drought tolerant once established, 'Honeycomb' should be grown in full sun and perfectly drained, average soil. Its interesting flowers are great for cutting and brighten sunny shrub borders and foundation plantings. Prune shrubs back dramatically in spring, and deadhead spent blooms to prolong flowering.
