Buddleia X weyeriana 'Honeycomb'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 5a-9b  Find Your Zone >

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 5a, where this Butterfly Bushes is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.

Special Attributes

'Honeycomb Yellow' is the best yellow butterfly bush on the market. In our gardens here in central Georgia it's out-performed every other yellow variety we've tried. It's yellow flowers are larger and more sweetly perfumed, and it continues to bloom much later into the season than other selections. The elongated flower clusters are unique in that the clusters occur in a pom pom like pattern along the length of the inflorescence. The foliage is an attractive silvery-green and plants have a nice compact habit when grown in more sun.

Landscape & Garden Uses

We have 'Honeycomb Yellow' growing in both garden beds and pots in our landscape. In the ground, it's 5-7 feet in height and 4-6 feet wide. In containers it doesn't grow quite as large, maybe 4 feet tall by 4 feet wide or so. That said, we'd recommend a larger pot of at least 15 inches or more in diameter. Ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings, or massed in landscape borders, flowering shrub borders and perennial gardens. A natural choice for butterfly and hummingbird gardens, Xeriscape gardens (low water needs, and blue-themed color gardens.

Suggested Spacing:  4' for solid hedges or mass plantings; 10' or more for space between plants

Cultural Preferences

'Honeycomb Yellow'  Butterfly Bush is exceptionally easy to grow. It thrives in full to mostly sun and isn't too picky about soil type, provided the soil is well-drained and of average fertility. At least 6 hours of direct sun per day is recommended for best flowering. As with so many other plants, constantly soggy or wet soils can cause problems with the roots.
