Pugster Pink® Butterfly Bush
Full-sized taffy-pink flowers on a space-saving plant!
If you love butterflies in the garden then you are bound to be familiar with Butterfly Bushes. These pollinator magnets are butterfly garden staples. Unfortunately, these beauties are often so big that they are impractical for smaller, urban gardens. They can easily reach 6 foot tall and just as wide before the summer is done.
Thankfully Proven Winners has developed a new line of buddleia that are the perfect space-savers. Pugster Butterfly Bushes only get to 2’ tall and wide – just right for borders, beds and containers. They’ll fit anywhere there is full sun!
And do you want to know the best thing? Even though the plants are dwarf, the flowers are not! These little beauties are covered with full-sized panicles of honey-scented blooms all summer and into the fall just like the bigger plants are - and like all Proven Winners buddleias there is no deadheading required to keep them blooming all season for you! Go ahead and cut armloads of the flowers. The stems are strong and thick and perfect for cutting. You’ll still have plenty left to please the butterflies, hummingbirds and bees that are sure to come visit.
Pugster Pink (Buddleia x 'SMNBDPT') is a happy taffy-pink that will draw your attention from all over the garden, but don’t let the soft color fool you. This is one tough plant that handles even the coldest zone 5 winter without a problem.
