Extra-Plump Flowers
Fragrant, extra-plump frosty-lavender flowers entice graceful butterflies to glide from one large blossom to the next sampling sweet nectar. Determined not to be left out, the delightful antics of hummingbirds entertain and add even more movement to the garden. The Pugster® Series Buddleia with their substantial stems increase winter survivability even in colder climates. Buddleia Pugster® Amethyst requires no deadheading or pruning and blooms continuously and abundantly. Simply plant and enjoy! Proven Winners® selections are trialed and tested to be colorful, long blooming, carefree and easy to grow. Butterfly Bushes are quite drought tolerant once established in the landscape. The unusual Pugster® name is attributed to its resemblance to a pug – the shrubs in this series are short, stocky and cute!
