While experimentation continues, Bicolor Butterfly Bush was the first to have a successful fusion of multiple colors within one flower truss. This page describes those unusual hybrids that have remained on the commercial market.
As with the majority of Buddleia genus, these hybrids create flowers to attract butterflies but they are also great hummingbird plants and other pollinators.
Winter climates should treat buddleia species and hybrids as perennial plants. These and all butterfly bushes favor growing in planting zones 4-9 and many are also deer resistant. Should you find those that aren't, try some homemade deer repellent.
Some hybrids have a pastel flow of colors on the individual flowers making the panicles very lovely to see.
