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.
