Product Overview

Pugster Amethyst butterfly bush offers full sized flowers on a dwarf plant. This compact butterfly bush reaches just 2'/.6 m tall and wide but has the large, full flowers normally seen on a much larger plant. 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. Perfect for containers, landscapes, and as accents!

  • Mature size 2 ft. tall and 2 ft. W - 3 ft. W
  • Full sun
  • Blooms summer to fall
  • Deciduous- foliage loss in winter and new growth in spring
  • Ships dormant winter through early spring

one was nice..
Ordered 2. One came nice and full, and green with tons of leaves, the second one 3/4 of the plant was dried up with the leaves in bottom of box. Very bare, although that one has a couple blooms starting on it. Fingers are crossed that it will survive.

The condition that they sent these plants was less than acceptable! They were tattered, withered and will take a lot of care to bring back to life!
