Quick Overview:

Meet Pugster Blue® – it’s a whole new look for butterfly bush. This compact plant reaches just 2′ 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 lavender blue flowers, each with a tiny yellow-orange eye in the center.



Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Becomes weedy and sparse with diminished flowering performance if not grown in full sun. Does poorly in wet conditions. In USDA Zones 5 and 6, this plant will often die to the ground in winter and therefore is often grown therein in the manner of an herbaceous perennial. Even if plants do not die to the ground in winter, they often grow more vigorously, produce superior flowers and maintain better shape if cut close to the ground in late winter each year. Prompt removal of spent flower spikes during the growing season will usually encourage continued bloom until frost. (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
