Full-sized flowers on a dwarf plant! Meet Pugster Pinker™ butterfly bush - the newest member of a unique series that offers full-sized flowers on dwarf plants. 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 very rich pink flowers, each with a tiny bright 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.
Top reasons to grow Pugster Pinker butterfly bush:
- Rich pink flowers add drool-worthy impact to any garden or landscape.
- Produces full-sized flowers on a compact, dwarf frame.
- Thick, sturdy stems ensure better winter hardiness in zone 5 than other dwarf butterfly bush
Plant in full sun for best flowering. Deadheading not required for continuous bloom. In clay soils, plant a bit higher than ground level to divert moisture away from the center of the plant.
With its dwarf habit and very large flowers, the Pugster® series of buddleia is ideal for perennial gardens, mixed borders, and containers. They also make a neat and showy edging.
Good drainage is essential. The combination of wet soil and cold temperatures is particularly detrimental.
