Product Overview

Meet Pugster Blue - it's a whole new look for butterfly bush. This compact plant reaches just 24 in. tall but has the large, full flowers normally seen on a much larger plant. It blooms non-stop from early summer through frost with true-blue 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.

My initial review was very bad. The weather in traveling across the country must have frozen it. It looked terrible on arrival. Since then it was put in a happy place with plenty of sunshine and water. It now looks as it should, healthy and flower buds are starting. I am happy that the adverse Weather did not kill it.

I was fully surprised how quickly shrub came via home delivery, and overall condition of the shrub. It is planted in good sunny location and is already blooming. Butterflies will soon find it. Plant not available at any local Depot, and the home delivery option had me a bit hesitant...based on prior experience from a different company that shipped plants directly to one's home. I ordered 3 types....and while one looked a bit off/dry....it soon will recover. Home Depot and vendor did above and beyond A+++
