Special Attributes

'Honeycomb Yellow' is the best yellow butterfly bush on the market. In our gardens here in central Georgia it has out-performed every other yellow variety we've tried. Its yellow flowers are larger and more sweetly perfumed, and it continues to bloom much later in 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. The butterflies will thank you for planting this one!



Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 5 to 12 feet tall and 4 to 8 feet wide (depending on whether or not plants are cut back in late winter), the Honeycomb Butterfly Bush is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings, or as a hedge in  flowering shrub borders or centerpiece or background in perennial gardens. A natural choice for butterfly and hummingbird gardens, yellow theme gardens and cottage gardens.

Suggested Spacing:  4 to 5 feet apart for solid hedges; 10 feet apart or more for space between plants



Cultural Preferences

'Honeycomb Yellow' Butterfly Bush is exceptionally easy to grow 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 suggested for best flowering. As with so many other plants, constantly soggy or wet soils can cause problems with the roots. Can be cut back to 12 to 18 inches abiove the ground in late winter or very early spring. Can also be deadheaded and pruned throughout the season for shaping purposes.
