You may have heard of the Pugster Pink® Butterfly Bush, but a new variation has arrived called the Proven Winner® Colorchoice® Pugster Pinker® Butterfly Bush (Buddleia ‘SMNBDB’).

That’s right! Even pinker! This hot pinkish magenta will pop in your yard and leave the neighbors to stop and stare!

Planting and Application:

Butterfly Bushes are an excellent companion for any yard! The possibilities are endless with this bush.

  • This smaller growing Butterfly Bush will grow to 18-24 inches in height and spread 2-2 ½ feet wide.
  • The name says it all–this bush attracts beautiful butterflies! You can also expect visits from bees and hummingbirds. This means your rich pink blooms will be pollinated and thriving all season long.
  • People use the Pugster Pinker™ Butterfly Bush most commonly for mass planting, low hedging, covering foundations, and perennial/mixed borders. You can really get creative with this versatile plant!
  • Just because this is a smaller Butterfly Bush doesn’t mean the blooms are smaller. The blooms are still large and full, blooming continuously till frost!
  • The bright green foliage acts as a gorgeous background to the bright pink blooms. You’ll love this contrast.
  • The Pugster Pinker™ Butterfly Bush thrives in zones 5-9. Need to find your hardiness zone? Use our map to locate yours!

#ProPlantTips for Care: 

Butterfly Bush Care is not too complicated! You’ll be an expert in no time.

  • Provide your Pugster Pinker™ Butterfly Bush with a full sun location! The bright colors will amaze you when the sunlight hits them.
  • Many gardeners question when to prune Butterfly Bushes. Butterfly Bush pruning is important so the bush grows back every year with full and healthy blooms. Prune back all stems hard each spring just before it starts to grow again!
  • If you live in a colder zone, it may die down all the way during the frosts and quickly regrow from the roots–these things grow quick!
  • Provide well drained soil for this bush so the soil doesn’t trap the moisture in and drown your precious roots.
