Buddleia or Wisteria Cuttings?

I made a schoolboy error and did not label my cuttings and now I've forgotten!

I believe these are either buddleia or wisteria, as I remember taking cuttings of both back in September. Can someone please ID them for me?

Also, should I be cutting these back so they don't grow too tall? 

Thank you.

    I think they are buddleia, the older leaves have a grey hint to them, also they are narrow.
    Wisteria have a wider part nearer the base end also the leaves are opposite along a narrow stem, and different green.
    Hope that helps id.

    They are looking healthy/ Good Luck.

    Those are definitely buddleia!

  • Thank you. I had thought they were buddleia but a family friend (who knows way more about plants than I do) said they didn't think so. I was going to just wait and see what happened but then I stumbled across this forum, so thought I'd ask the experts! :)

    Thank you. Of the three I have left, two are going great, but one looks dead (the one on the right in the final photo). I'm not sure if it is totally dead so I will leave it and see what happens.
