Sturdy spires of purple-blue fragrant flowers each dotted with a tiny orange eye bloom non-stop from early summer through frost. Buddleia PugsterŪ Blue is ideal for a patio container. The unusual PugsterŪ name is attributed to its resemblance to a pug – the shrubs in this series are short, stocky and cute! Butterflies and hummingbirds adore the nectar-rich blossoms.

Buddleia PugsterŪ Blue requires no deadheading or pruning and blooms continuously and abundantly. Simply plant and enjoy! Proven WinnersŪ 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 PugsterŪ Series Buddleia sport full-sized flowers on a smaller-scale plant. Their substantial stems increase winter survivability even in colder climates.
