Product Overview

Pugster Amethyst Butterfly Bush from Proven Winners has full sized blooms on a compact bush. It blooms non-stop from early summer through frost with amethyst-toned flowers, each with a tiny yellow-orange eye in the center. Thanks to thick, sturdy stems, the Pugster series offers vastly improved hardiness and winter survival over other types of dwarf butterfly bush. It is fragrant, drought tolerant, attracts pollinators, and resists deer and rabbits.

  • Hardy in zones 5-9, be sure to check your USDA zone to ensure success
  • 1 Gal. shrubs are 6-14 in. tall and about 1-year old at shipment, varies by season and plant

I planted it after our last frost. It is in the ground but is dead. I bought another butterfly bush product and it is also dead. I would love a refund since they were both expensive. I can send photos if you need them.

    The plant came through the mail in great condition. It is cut way back, which I expected, but I haven't seen any growth yet. I've had it for a couple weeks. I will update when I see if it blooms.

    These shrubs, along with another I ordered, arrived in perfect condition! They shipped quickly and are all healthy. They are a great value since other sources for these shrubs charged the same amount for only 2-quart size.

    I assumed that it would arrive dormant, but it was fully leafed out and even had some blooms sprouting. I’m very impressed with this butterfly Bush and will get it planted as soon as our weather permits.

    Excellent! This butterfly bush packs a big punch I have a lot of butterflies and hummingbirds daily. The size it nice and compact it is about 3’ high by 2’ wide the smell is beautiful and strong. I ordered 4 more different colors. As much as I love my large butterfly bush this one is just all around more compact and neat in my garden.

      Plants seem to be settling in. No blooms yet after almost a month. The bloom remnants when the plants arrived appeared to be "white" or a "light pink" rather than amethyst. We will see what I actually received; foliage looks correct.Price was way too high for what I received. A few week later, I was able to by a 3-gallon Pugster from a local nursery that is blooming like crazy for the same price as Home Depot charged for a 1-gallon plant.I doubt if I will use Home Depot again.
