    Features

    A whole new look for butterfly bush! What makes a space-saving dwarf butterfly bush even better? Full sized flowers! Pugster® butterfly bushes are the first to offer large, dense blooms on a small frame for maximum impact in the landscape. Continuous blooming habit means that you'll enjoy the taffy-pink flowers of Pugster Pink® from summer through frost without deadheading. Perhaps best of all, the thick, heavy stems of Pugster butterfly bushes ensure better hardiness and winter survival in cold areas than other dwarf butterfly bushes.

    Top three reasons to grow Pugster Pink® butterfly bush:

    1. Candy pink flowers are large size, even though the plant is compact.

    2. Blooms all summer without deadheading - low maintenance!

    3. Thick stems mean better winter survival, even in USDA zone 5.
