Full sized flowers on a dwarf plant! Attracts bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds! Deer and rabbit resistant.
Meet Pugster Blue it's a whole new look for butterfly bush. This compact plant 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 thick, sturdy stems, the Pugster® series offers vastly improved hardiness and winter survival over other types of dwarf butterfly bush.
Here's what Julie says: "Butterfly bushes are a win-win, win-win. They flower all summer with these beautiful purples, they smell amazing, the deer don't eat them, and their drought tolerant (that's a bonus win!). Sometimes in the winter you'll get some die back on the stems, but they will usually come back from the roots. Pugsters are the new dwarf varieties and these grow great in a pot; perfect for the patio where you can really enjoy the fragrance on a summer night."
