Cultivar'Dubonnet'

Buddleja davidii 'Dubonnet' is one of the older davidii cultivars; it once enjoyed much commercial success, but became eclipsed by later releases and is no longer widely available.[1]

Description[edit]

'Dubonnet' typically grows to a height of 2.0 m. The cultivar is distinguished by its purple flowers with light orange throats, forming terminal panicles 20–25 cm in length. The leaves are an unremarkable green and of typical size for the species.[2]

Cultivation[edit]

'Dubonnet' has become established on both sides of the Atlantic. In the UK, a specimen is grown as part of the NCCPG national collection at the Longstock Park Nursery near Stockbridge, Hampshire. Hardiness: USDA zones 5–9. [1]
