Around midsummer, when the pendulous racemes of flowers weigh down its boughs, it’s hard to decide which is more satisfying: Buddleia’s abundant, often fragrant blossoms, or the myriad butterflies they attract.
Unique for its breathtaking sweetly scented spectacle of glorious clear yellow blossoms warmed by orange eyes, this recent Mike Dirr cross between davidii and globosa is deemed the best of the yellow-blooming Buddleja. A winsome, somewhat close-knit silver-laced foundation unleashes globe-shaped, 4 to 6 in. long terminal panicles, welcoming plant mavens, florists and butterflies, while adding ebullient long-lasting summer accents to mixed border companions such as Persicaria ‘Blackfield’ and Salvia ‘Limelight’.
