Trial: Perennial

Years Trialed: 1998, 1999

Good Qualities

Year 1

Great creamy yellow flowers (4); Vigorous (4); The plants were all healthy and flowered throughout the season; Because of a severe drought this year and no irrigation on my Buddleia, my 1999 plants of Sungold have grown very little but I expect to report good news on these next year; Less common than B. davidii but fragrant; Long stems, interesting shape and the color fits into the fall season very well. Still blooming September 23; Few insects. Dark green foliage; Late flowering for all sales; Good fall color; Heat tolerant.

Year 2

Color. Vigorous plants; Quick from rooted cuttings. Blooms late September – October. Yellow bloom at right time of year; Easy to grow; Still cutting flowers on 11-17-99, good fall color; Flowered all season.

Problems

Year 1

Older florets turn brown before enough florets are open to be showy (2); Constant deadheading; Seeds around. Short vase life.

Year 2

Some flowers brown before whole cluster open (2); I didn’t think (wishful thinking!) any of these would make it through the winter but I did. However, it didn’t blossom before the frost came (and it was late this year). The ones that didn’t make had such tough roots and trunk that they are still in the ground taking up valuable space; Terminal flower opens long before side blooms. Requires cleaning to sell stem; Vase life a problem; Small flower heads, did not produce well this year.

Comments

Year 1

Buddleia ‘Honeycomb’ has the same color only larger panicles; Can sell all day long; I started my own plants (from cuttings) of this Buddleia in 1997. It is a strong grower and yellow flower is a big hit; The real test is will it overwinter in zone 3; This will be a good seller! Florist are asking for this one; Blossoms didn’t develop before frost came. It will not make it through the winter!

Year 2

I didn’t like this one last year and nothing happened this year to make me change my mind!; I just taken all my plants out. I’m going to try “honeycomb”; Ninety percent killed in an early December Zone 6 type winter. We have selected and repropagated from this ‘freeze resistant’ stock and will report if it appears to be hardier; This is very easy to make cuttings. Designers like this very much. My favorite.
