Description

Full sized flowers on a compact buddleia! Pugster® buddleia differ from others thanks to their dense, compact habits and full sized flowers. Thick, sturdy stems are less brittle than other butterfly bush and give them better winter resistance in cold climates. Pugster Periwinkle® buddleia has purple flowers densely packed in clusters and blooms summer through frost without deadheading.

Soil

Good drainage is essential. The combination of wet soil and cold temperatures is particularly detrimental.

Pruning

Prune only after new growth emerges in spring. Cut back to just above a set of large, healthy buds.

Uses

With its dwarf habit and very large flowers, the Pugster® series of buddleia is ideal for perennial gardens, mixed borders, and containers. They also make a neat and showy edging.

Growing Tips

Plant in full sun for best flowering. Deadheading not required for continuous bloom. In clay soils, plant a bit higher than ground level to divert moisture away from the center of the plant.
