More Information

Description You’ve probably never seen luxurious, massive white flowers like these on such a petite frame! Pugster White® only grows 2’ tall and 2-3’ wide, but its blooms are full-sized. Its stocky frame is built with sturdy stems, which are great for keeping it safe in winter and they make great cut flowers! But you won’t actually need to deadhead it at all for it to rebloom throughout summer and into fall. This tidy butterfly-attracting package is perfect for front of the border placement or it would perfectly complement other white flowers in a patio garden, where it's perfect for enjoying in the evening when it glows in the moonlight. Details Botanical name: Buddleia x SMNBDW
Patent #: USPP 28,795
Common name: Butterfly bush
Zone: 5 - 9
Sun exposure: Sun (6+ hours sun)
Height x width: 2' x 2-3'
Flower color: White
Foliage color: Green
Season of interest: Summer-fall
Uses: Accent, border, container gardening, cottage gardening, massing, small spaces
How To Grow Soil: Butterfly bushes require very well-drained, even dry, soils. Do not amend or add anything to the soil at planting time, as this can cause serious drainage problems. In clay soil, plant butterfly bush so they are slightly above, rather than even with, the soil.
Light: Full sun - at least six hours of bright sun each day is necessary for healthy plants and abundant blooms.
Water: Low to average watering; soil can even be dry once established. Butterfly bush does not tolerate wet conditions for any time.
Spacing: 3 to 4 feet
Fertilizing: Little needed; if desired, apply a granular rose or garden fertilizer in early spring.
Winterizing: In fall, plants can be trimmed lightly if desired, but save major pruning for spring. Do not fertilize in fall, and if mulching, do not apply heavily at the base of the plant.
Maintenance & pruning: Butterfly bushes are best pruned in spring, once the new growth has begun to emerge. At that point, cut just above where big, healthy buds appear. Give butterfly bushes plenty of time to emerge in spring, especially in colder climates - this may take several weeks, even if other plants in your yard are already leafing out.

Several Pugsters

Pugster butterfly bushes were great, arrived exactly as advertised, and have already established and started thriving a month after planting. Highly recommend this seller.

Disappointed

They thrived all summer ( spring planting), looked gorgeous going into winter. This spring 3 are dead and one has on 2 branches with leaves. I have had GREAT success with Great Garden plants before and since. I am at a loss.

Hi Kelley, We're sorry to hear about your Butterfly Bush. These plants are notorious for pushing out spring growth late (this can as late as June in some places). Do you see any emerging buds? The best way to know if your plant is truly dead is to look at the stems. Alive stems are firm and have a green cast when you cut or scrape them. If the stems are dry and brittle, they are dead. However, a few dead branches does not mean the entire bush is dead. Be thorough with checking all the stems. If you still have questions or concerns, please email claims@greatgardenplants.com and we can help you further. Happy Gardening!

Love this little butterfly bush

My small yard cannot handle a standard size butterfly bush, so this little guy is perfectly sized and delivers large blooms. This white one is new to me and has not had time to root in and bloom yet but if it performs like my other Pugsters, it will be a star!

Love these plants!

These little gems are nicely petite and compact, yet their blooms are grand and are lasting here in my area even now at the end of October! They lighten and brighten my garden with robust flowers and this with only 4 - 5 hours of daily sun. Plus, deer and rodents stay away from them. Unlike the larger specimens, these plants retain a symmetrical shape and do not spread by reseeding invasively. The plants arrived in excellent health and size, reaching maturity in a couple of months. I have nothing but high praise for these pugsters!
