Buddleia 'Pugster Blue'

Buddleia Pugster Blue

Buisson des papillons 'Pugster Blue'
Share

This compact and sturdy plant may look like a dwarf, but it produces the large, dense, fragrant flowers you’d associate with a much larger plant. Blooms from early summer through to frost. The small flowers that constitute the cone or spire are brilliant blue, each with a tiny yellow-orange eye at the center. Buddleias are called butterfly bushes because they attract butterflies, though bees and hummingbirds love them too. The name ‘pugster’ comes from the blooms’ resemblance to a pug: short, stocky and cute!  At 2 feet high and wide, the long-blooming period and vivid colour of these plants make them an eye-catching addition anywhere in your garden or landscaping. They are both heat and drought tolerant, as long as there is full sun and well-drained soil.
