This plant may not thrive in your area
The "Pugster" series of butterfly bushes packs a terrific punch in a small package. You'll enjoy the same full-sized flowers that grow on a standard-size butterfly bush -- but on compact plants that reach only 2 feet tall and wide. Pugster Periwinkle Butterfly Bush (Buddleia x 'SMNDBO' PUGSTER PERIWINKLE™) is covered in summer with fragrant periwinkle-blue flowers that beckon butterflies and lure hummingbirds!
Strong, Sturdy and Scent-sational
Although Pugster Periwinkle Butterfly Bush is a small version of much-larger butterfly bushes, it's incredibly durable and resilient.
• Strong stems. The stems are not spindly; they're thick, which gives them stronger winter hardiness.
• Sturdy branching. More branches mean more flowers, and Pugster Periwinkle Butterfly Bush doesn't disappoint. Well-branched plants support a profusion of flowers from summer 'til frost.
• Sweetly scented flowers. Summer breezes carry the fragrance from the large flower clusters to your favorite sitting area.
A Landscape Mini-Gem with Maximum Appeal
Plant Pugster Periwinkle Butterfly Bush in a sunny spot anywhere you can enjoy the scent of its flowers. Even if your favorite chair is tucked under a tree, plant Pugster Periwinkle Butterfly Bush just outside the canopy of the tree where it can thrive in full sun while you find relief in the shade. Along a sunny sidewalk that leads to your front door, Pugster Periwinkle Butterfly Bush is a superior edging plant that regales visitors to your home with its sweet fragrance. As an exemplary container plant, Pugster Periwinkle Butterfly Bush is a cold-hardy flowering perennial that fills pots with unflagging color even in the heat of summer when other plants struggle.
A Snap to Grow
Unlike many butterfly bushes that need deadheading '– removing spent flowers so new flowers will grow '– Pugster Periwinkle Butterfly Bush blooms continuously without needing you to deadhead it. It stands up to full sun; in fact, it needs at least 6 hours of sun each day for its best bloom. Newly planted shrubs need deep, thorough watering to keep the roots moist until they become established; thereafter, you'll only need to water if natural rainfall doesn't provide 1 inch of water each week. The exception is plants in containers, which dry quicker in the summer heat than in-ground plants. Simply fertilize once in early summer with a slow-release fertilizer to nourish plants and maximize their bloom potential!
