A true blue, compact, cold-hardy butterfly bush!
Full sized flowers on a dwarf butterfly bush! The Pugster Blue® Butterfly Bush from Proven Winners produces stunning blue flowers with yellow eyes in each floret. The huge blooms last for months, starting in early summer and lasting into fall!
Dense foliage and good branching result in a full, lush display of colorful, fragrant flowers.
Very thick, sturdy stems ensure better winter survival in less-than-ideal conditions, so Pugster Blue® is a great choice for areas where other Butterfly Bush varieties experience winter dieback.
Fragrant flowers attract pollinators.
Deadheading not needed for continuous bloom.
Dwarf Butterfly Bush Care
Provide full sun. Too little light will cause growth issues.
Fertilization is suggested, especially if soil is poor. Our slow release fertilizer is a great option.
Prune after established to encourage a dense, well branched and rounded plant; avoid cutting into thick stems. It's suggested to prune this plant in the spring as new growth is emerging. Avoid fall and winter pruning.
Prefers well-draining soil.
Water well, especially after planting prior to establishment. Attempt to keep soil moist, but not wet. It's suggested to place 2"-3" of mulch under this plant to help retain ground moisture.
