PUGSTER® AMETHYST BUTTERFLY BUSH

Breeder
Buy Pugster® Amethyst Butterfly Bush online. Meet Pugster® Amethyst Butterfly Bush - a new member of the unique Pugster® series that offers full sized flowers on a dwarf plant. This compact butterfly bush reaches just 2' 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.

Homeowner Growing & Maintenance

Buddleia is slightly difficult to grow and needs to be planted in locations where it does not stay wet. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer. To give your plant the best start possible, we include free fertilizer with every order.
