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.
