More Information

Description You can finally get big flower drama without a bulky habit with Pugster Periwinkle® from Proven Winners, which only grows 2’ tall and 2-3’ wide and grows full-size flowers. Its thick, sturdy stems hold these pretty, pollinator-attracting blooms aloft with ease and are less brittle than other butterfly bush, which gives them better winter hardiness. So you’ll get to see these massive, pretty purple flowers year after year, from the beginning of summer ‘til frost, all without a bit of deadheading! Details Botanical name: Buddleia x
Patent: USPP 28,796
Common name: Butterfly bush
Zone: 5 - 9
Sun exposure: Full sun (6+ hours sun)
Height x width: 2' tall and 2-3' wide
Flower color: Purple
Foliage color: Green
Season of interest: Summer-fall
Uses: Specimen, flower gardens, pollinator gardens, cut flower gardens, mixed borders
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 do not tolerate wet conditions for any period of 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.

pugster butterfly bush

ordered two bushes, one thrived but the other just never grew, hasn't died entirely but is still the exact same size as when i planted it and quite sickly looking. both were planted in the same soil, same area. Not sure I would order again at the price and then the additional shipping cost I'm not sure it's worth it.

The first punster perrywinkle was terrific when it arrived, so I ordered another and totally dried out with leaves withering and falling off . So sad. I’m trying to save it but very displeased.

I’m a new customer, I have made 2 or 3 purchases from you guys. I have been overwhelmed by the service I have received. The plants are beautiful and if you call you get a real person on the phone.

QUALITY IS SURPERB

Amazing quality and very well packaged. You can't realize the quality of this plant unless you have received very poor quality. Ordered five from a dealer on ETSY and they can't compare to this plant, one was 2 1/2 inches tall which should have been a Pugster Amethyst but has bloomed twice and all white. All five plants had a fungus and required several treatments with a fungicide but now all clear. This plant has several buds ready to bloom and extremely healthy. Wilted a little from the trip but will improve as I have all four plants that I received in a shaded area. Will order from this company many times. THANKS
