The sterile Buddleias grew very nicely last year. By far the fastest growing shrubs in the yard, bloomed later into the summer and fall, and deer didn't touch them. We want to fill in between them, for a hedge. I want multicolored flowers. Currently, the hedge consists of Buddleia X Flutterby Peach Cobbler (3) and Blueberry Cobbler (1); Miss Ruby (1) and a yellow unknown I suspect is Buddleia globosa.

The down side for the sterile Buddleias, so far, is they can look weedy, and the early flowers on the long flower clusters dry up and turn brown, before the last flowers open. Which can look shabby, unless they are deadheaded despite the unopened end flowers.
