Common name: Butterfly bush
Zone: 5 - 9
Sun exposure: Full sun (6+ hours sun)
Height x width: 2' x 2-3'
Flower color: Blue
Foliage color: Green
Season of Interest: Summer-fall
Uses: Accent, Border, Container gardening, Cottage gardening, Massing, Small spaces, Pollinator Gardens.
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 period of time.
Spacing: 3 to 4 feet
Fertilizing: Little needed; if desired, apply a granular rose or garden fertilizer in early spring. Do not fertilize in fall.
Winterizing: In fall, plants can be trimmed lightly if desired but save major pruning for spring. 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.

Great Plant

Disappointed

I ordered 9 Pugster Blue. Every bush had just been transplanted from a much smaller pot into a one-quart pot. The bushes had lots of broken pieces and have very immature root systems. The bushes appeared to be move into larger pots the day the bushes were packaged for shipment. The outline of the smaller pot was clearly visible and still intact. Also, whoever transplanted the bushes didn't even completely fill the one-quart pot with garden soil.

Hello! Thank you for leaving feedback. We apologize you received your plants not up to our standards. Please email pictures of the plant to claims@greatgardenplants.com, making sure to put your order number and name in the subject line so that we may provide the best assistance possible. While we do ship young plants, our growers only release plants for shipment with well established root systems. If you received plants that were not well established we'd be happy to refund or replace your order. Happy Gardening!

Lively little plant

I planted a few days after receiving. It had blossoms on it on arrival. It hasn’t stopped pushing more & more out since then. I know it’s been scorching here, but this little guy is using it all to make me smile. Very healthy plant, & pretty color.

As described

I purchased three of these plants a little over a year ago and they have produced exactly as they were described...they attract an array of pollinators, including butterflies. Even more impressive is they have more than doubled in size. I have already purchased more in different colors.
