Buddleya weyerina Butterfly tree   Loganiaceae
 

Buddleya weyerina, Butterfly tree, Budleia

 

Buddleya weyerina, Butterfly tree, BudleiaThis name applies to hybrids between Buddleja davidii and B. globosa, the first of which was raised by a Mr Van der Weyer in England in 1914.
In growth habit they resemble B. davidii though taller and with longer canes, but the flower spikes are broken up into globular bunches of cream or orange-yellow flowers reminiscent of the heads of B. globosa.
Golden Glow is the best known cultivar with rich gold flowers, deeper orange in the throat.
Wattle Bird is a recent Australian hybrid with pale yellow flowers in very elongated spikes.
Cultivation: Buddlejas prefer full sun and good drainage, but are not fussy about the soil type.
Fairly hard pruning controls their straggly appearance.
Propagate from cuttings.
