  • Dwarf habit
  • Very large flowers

Big flowers on a small plant. Thick, sturdy stems ensure better winter survival than other dwarf varieties. Pugster® buddleia are like no others - they have a short, stocky frame but with flowers the size you'd find on plants three times larger. Pugster White® buddleia offers huge white flower spikes for a classic look that is especially enjoyable on summer nights.

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.
