Big flowers on a small plant!
Pugster White® gives butterfly bush a whole new look: - its small, sturdy frame bears large flowers the size you'd find on much taller plants. Each bloom is a full, dense cluster of crisp white blooms, emitting a honey-sweet fragrance and treating bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds to a tasty snack. Like all Proven Winners butterfly bushes, it blooms all summer without deadheading. Because of their thick, strong stems, Pugster® butterfly bushes have better hardiness and winter survival in zone 5 than other dwarf varieties.
Butterfly bush needs full sun - a minimum of 6 hours each day. Well-drained soil is also crucial, as wet soil (particularly during cold weather) can cause root rot. Be sure to plant butterfly bush a little "high" in its hole - place the base of the plant slightly above ground level. In cold climates, wait to prune butterfly bush until spring, after new growth has begun to emerge on the stems.
