Buddleia weyeriana Honeycomb * Gold Butterfly Bush

The Gold Butterfly Bush, Buddleia Honeycomb holds its flowers differently from the more evenly conical Buddleia davidii hybrids. The Buddleia Honeycomb flowers are in clusters at the tip of the branches instead of in an evenly formed cone. It has been hardy into the low teens at my house and tolerant of many soil types. Mine is 8 feet tall and going strong. Buddleia Honeycomb would prefer great soil but will perform well in soil that is far below that standard. Buddleia Honeycomb is hardy in winter conditions to 0 degrees or below. Buddleia plants produce seedlings and have become a pest in some areas. Buddleia should not be planted adjacent to wild areas.

Buddleia Honeycomb is a nectar source for the Red Admiral Butterfly and a great addition to the butterfly garden.
