Buddleja x weyeriana is a hybrid cross between B. davidii and B. globosa. The flowers appear in round pom-pom clusters up to 25cm long and are highly scented.

Growing to 4.5m tall, this butterfly bush plant is best pruned back at the end of summer / beginning of spring unless it has lots of room to grow! Flowers appear in abundance on one season's growth.

There are several cultivar varieties of Buddleja x weyeriana. All are vigorous plants, but their flower colours differ slightly:

  • 'Sungold' butterfly bush has long butterscotch-yellow flower clusters.
  • 'Golden Glow' butterfly bush has apricot-yellow flowers in more open flower clusters.
  • 'Honeycomb' butterfly bush has paler yellow flowers

Plant all buddleia bushes in full sun. The butterflies they attract are more active in full sunlight and the bush will flower more prolifically too.
