PUGSTER® Series

An introduction to using PUGSTER® butterfly bushes in your landscape or garden

Pugster Buddleia are the first to combine dwarf habit with very large, highly fragrant blooms. Thick, sturdy stems increase hardiness, making this series better suited to areas where other buddleia experience winter dieback.

  • PUGSTER BLUE® Butterfly Bush

    A smaller habit, but not smaller blooms. Pugster Blue® buddleia has the same impact as a full size plant, but with a much smaller footprint. You’ll love how its massive dark blue blooms (measuring up to six inches long) decorate the stocky habit. Each bloom pops up, almost like a firework. Its quirky habit cheers up the border, makes a fun low hedge, or integrates easily into a pollinator garden. After it’s established, it is extraordinarily drought tolerant and doesn’t need any deadheading to bloom from summer straight through to frost. You’ll only need to give it a quick trim in spring to encourage that vigorous new growth each season. Pugster Blue butterfly bush is a Blue Ribbon Winner for performance in the University of California low irrigation landscape trials.
