Wow!!
Purchased my Pugster on the sad sack discount area in June 2021- It was 1/2 price and crossed my fingers. Well, not only did it survive-it thrived and out performed everything else in my little strip garden this year. So impressed!

    Pugster Blue Butterfly Bush, with Blue Flowers arrived wilted, unlike any other Home Depot, Proven Winners live plants that I've received. Scores of others have arrived healthy and ready to plant. I did notify Proven Winners and they instructed me to give it more time to adjust to the shipping and transplanting. After a week in the ground, it did perk up, but no flowers yet, after two weeks in the ground. The deer have not bothered it, which is a problem for me because of nearby woods. As all Proven Winners live plants, they come well packaged with complete planting and care instructions. See pics below.

    The Proven Winners 1 gallon Pugster Blue Butterfly Bush (Buddleia) Live Shrub with Blue Flowers is a nice plant that will hopefully flower next year. (I got it in late July) The shrub did look dry and a bit uncared for when it arrived on my stoop, but we planted and watered and after about a week, it is doing really well. Looking forward to years of butterflies. I will say that the butterfly bushes in general really attract the butterflies, and this color should be really pretty next year. The shrub was easy to take out of the box it came in, we unwrapped from the bag, took out of the plastic pot, and planted immediately. Watered and we were done. Quick and easy planting and the bush is doing really well after a week in warm temperatures in the northeast.

    What a great job Proven Winners did getting this plant to me. It had to travel from Michigan to Washington state in 90-100 degree weather and it showed up in great shapest a wee bit wilty, but nothing to complain about. The plant I received was about a foot tall. It is quite bushy. I don't believe this is the time of year that this plant has flowers so I am hoping to see some before the end of summer. This plant looks great considering what it had to travel through to get to me. Awesome!

      I feel like the plants are healthy, but when arrived many limbs are broken off and dirt everywhere. Even the replacement arrived in the same condition. I have ordered from Home Depot before but have not had this problem.
