- Full Sized Blooms On True Dwarf Plant
- Honey Scented Lavender Blooms
- Full Sun Loving Garden Or Container Plant
- Attracts Butterflies, Hummingbirds & Pollinators
Butterfly Bushes are some of the most loved garden plants in modern gardens, and not just by gardeners, but by hummingbirds, bees and, of course, butterflies. Problem is that these plants can get to be pretty huge. Six feet tall and just as wide is pretty common. That alone will often take them out of the running for smaller, urban gardens.
The Pugster line of Buddleia that was developed by Proven Winners are bred to be naturally dwarf. They only get a couple feet tall and wide. This means that they can fit anywhere in any-sized garden.
That is all well and good, but do you have to compromise flower size to get smaller bush size? We are happy to report that the answer is no! These little beauties pump out full-sized panicles of honey-scented blooms all summer and into the fall just like their big brothers. (And like all Proven Winners Buddleias it doesn’t require deadheading to keep blooming all season for you!) You’ll have plenty for cutting to bring inside and still have tons left to invite your pollinator friends over for a visit.
Pugster Periwinkle, Buddleia x ‘SMNBDO’, is a gorgeous shade of soft, true lavender, but don’t let the soft color fool you. This is a tough plant with thick, strong stems that can handle even the coldest of zone 5 winters far better than most other dwarf plants.
