Full sized flowers on a dwarf plant!


Meet Pugster® Amethyst butterfly bush - the newest member of this unique series that offers full sized flowers on a dwarf plant. This compact butterfly bush 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 amethyst-toned flowers, each with a tiny yellow-orange eye in the center. Thanks to 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® Amethyst'

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.
