A whole new look for butterfly bush! What makes a space-saving dwarf butterfly bush even better? Full sized flowers! Pugster® butterfly bushes are the first to offer large, dense blooms on a small frame for maximum impact in the landscape. Continuous blooming habit means that you'll enjoy the taffy-pink flowers of Pugster Pink® from summer through frost without deadheading. Perhaps best of all, the thick, heavy stems of Pugster® butterfly bushes ensure better hardiness and winter survival in cold areas than other dwarf butterfly bushes.
Butterfly bush needs full sun to grow and flower its best - a minimum of 6 hours is required; 8 or more is best. Good drainage is absolutely imperative, so when planting, place the shrub so that the base is slightly above ground level and do not overwater. As for pruning, in cold climates, you should only cut butterfly bush after the new growth begins to appear on the stems in spring.
