Buddleia 'Butterfly Gold'


Buddleja 'Butterfly Gold' has variegated gold and green foliage fading to white and green as the season progresses. Lilac flowers bloom all summer long.

Buddleia 'Butterfly Gold' is another magnet for the pollinators, however, this one brings a sense of elegance with variegated foliage that emerges with wide margins of gold around green centres before fading to milky-white. Fragrant summer blooms compliment the foliage with delicate lilac-purple spikes. A more compact cultivar reaching just 6 feet tall. Great for smaller gardens or large pots. Some drought tolerance.
