More Information

Description Enormous pink flowers and a space-saving habit? This perfect combination is brought to us by none other than Pugster Pinker™ butterfly bush (Buddleia sp.)! Replacing the original Pugster Pink®, this buddleia features bigger and richer blooms than its predecessor. This dwarf buddleia's study stems give it better winter survival than conventional butterfly bushes. Combine that with its deer and drought resistance, and you've got an almost care-free shrub! This prolific buddleia will liven up your garden for months and months with dozens of candy pink, honey-scented blooms. Tuck this space-saver into a sunny spot in your perennial garden or pair it with your favorite container; wherever you plant it, butterflies will come! Details Botanical name: Buddleia x 'SMNBDPT'
Patent: PP 33,565
Common name: Butterfly bush
Zone: 5 -9
Sun exposure: Full sun (6+ hours)
Height x width: 2' x 2-2.5'
Flower color: Pink
Foliage color: Green
Season of Interest: Summer-fall
Bloom time: Summer, fall
Features: Space savers, rabbit resistant, proven winners, low flammability, heat tolerant, fragrant, dry soils, drought tolerant, deer resistant, containers, best for beginners
Uses: Specimen, flower gardens, butterfly, and hummingbird 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: 2.5'
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.

Thoughts so far on butterfly bushes

When I received the plants, they were looking pretty rough. The soil was dry and the plants looked like they were going to die. I gave them water and let them sit for a couple days. They did perk up. I planted them, but upon seeing the roots, didn’t hold out much hope that they would live. They are still alive! I hope they stay alive. Was disappointed in the condition they arrived in though. Other places do better. Not sure I will try again with them or not. We shall see!

Pugster Butterfly bush

Love them. They flower and you don't have to deadhead them. they are compact so you really don't have to trim them. And even the leaf without the flower is attractive.
