The plant first flowered in June of 2003. A similar cross made at North Carolina State was described as Buddleja ×luteolufaucia Elliot and Werner.
|TIME, PLACE, METHOD OF PROPAGATION: Summer 2003; Quincy, FL; cuttings|
Cuttings were taken in late winter and treated with 5000 ppm K-IBA. The cuttings root readily under intermittent mist.
| RECOMMENDED CULTURAL PRACTICES (e.g. pinching, staking, pruning): May wish to prune to ground in very late winter as it flowers on new growth.
| RECOMMENDED PLANTING LOCATION (e.g. sun, shade, wet, dry, container, soil type): Will perform best in moist, well-drained soils that receive adequate irrigation during drought. Some afternoon shade would be beneficial.
| PROJECTED SIZE OF MATURE PLANT: 1 m + tall (guessing).|
|PROJECTED HARDINESS ZONE RANGE: USDA zones 6 through 10 (guessing).
|PROJECTED NUMBER OF YEARS FOR EVALUATION:two years. |
|RECOMMENDED STANDARD TO BE USED FOR COMPARISON (if any): none. |
|DESCRIPTION: Shrub native to the Philippines, Taiwan and eastern Asia. White flowers in corymbs in spring followed by yellow fruit turning red while other sources say fruit turn black (I have not observed fruiting yet). Some say leaves turn bronze in autumn. Original plant obtained from Margie Jenkins, Jenkins Farm &Nursery, during the 2003 SERA IEG 27 Meeting in Baton Rouge, LA.|
