Description / Buddleia Pugster White® Butterfly Bush

A Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Flowering Shrub, the Pugster White® Butterfly Bush is a delightful addition to any garden, known for its unique combination of compact size and full-sized blooms. Despite its petite stature, growing only 2 to 3 feet tall and wide, this Buddleia variety does not compromise flower power. Throughout the summer and until the first frost, Pugster White produces dense spikes of crisp, white blossoms that are both visually stunning and wonderfully fragrant.

Perfect for small-space gardens, this shrub's tidy, mounding habit makes it a versatile choice for various landscape applications. Whether used as a focal point in a small urban garden or a dramatic thriller in a mixed container, Pugster White shines in any setting. When massed or grouped in the landscape, it provides a captivating display that works beautifully in mixed beds, borders, and as an attractive ground cover.

Butterfly enthusiasts will be particularly delighted with Pugster White, as its nectar-rich flowers attract a multitude of pollinators, including bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. The sweet honey-like scent adds to the charm, making it a fragrant focal point in any garden.

Caring for Pugster White® is a breeze, thanks to its robust and low-maintenance nature. It thrives in full sun, needing at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight each day, and prefers well-drained soil. To ensure optimal growth and prevent water pooling, plant it slightly above ground level, creating a small "hill" to encourage drainage. While drought and heat-tolerant, Pugster White also benefits from regular watering during prolonged dry spells. It's deer resistant and pet friendly, making it a safe choice for gardens with pets and wildlife.

One of the secrets to keeping your Pugster White blooming profusely is regular deadheading, which promotes continuous flowering and helps prevent unwanted self-seeding. Since it blooms on new wood, prune it in the spring just above the new buds to maintain its shape and encourage vigorous growth.

With its compact size, large blooms, and ease of care, the Pugster White Butterfly Bush is an exceptional choice for gardeners looking to add year-round beauty and pollinator-friendly flowers to their landscapes.
