Full sized flowers on a dwarf plant!



Meet the Pugster® series - a whole new look for butterfly bush. It's a compact plant that reaches just 2'/.6 m tall and wide but has the large, full flowers normally seen on a much larger plant. It blooms non-stop from early summer through frost with true-blue flowers, each with a tiny yellow-orange eye in the center. Thanks to its thick, sturdy stems, the Pugster® series offers vastly improved hardiness and winter survival over other types of dwarf butterfly bush.

Growing & Maintenance Tips for Buddleia x 'Pugster Blue®'

Butterfly bush needs full sun for best performance. Grow only in well-drained soil and be sure to plant them slightly high in the hole - in other words, with the base of the plant slightly above ground level. In cold climates, prune only in spring, after the new growth has begun to appear on the stems.
