Big flowers on a small plant!

Pugster White® gives butterfly bush a whole new look: - its small, sturdy frame bears large flowers the size you'd find on much taller plants. Each bloom is a full, dense cluster of crisp white blooms, emitting a honey-sweet fragrance and treating bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds to a tasty snack. Like all Proven Winners butterfly bushes, it blooms all summer without deadheading. Because of their thick, strong stems, Pugster® butterfly bushes have better hardiness and winter survival in zone 5 than other dwarf varieties.

Top three reasons to grow Pugster White® butterfly bush: 

  1. Large, full-sized white blooms shine on summer nights.
  2. Thicker stems ensure better winter survival than other small butterfly bushes.
  3. Blooms continuously without deadheading.
