Butterfly bushes (Buddleias) like Pugster Periwinkle are aptly named butterfly magnets in the summer landscape. This cute butterfly bush offers big light purple flowers on a small shrub. The flowers attract butterflies, hummingbirds, bees and people with their honey-like fragrance. And you can get all these benefits in a shrub that is drought tolerant and happy in the hot summer sun.

Pugster Periwinkle Butterfly Bush grows to only 2 feet high and about 2 to 3 feet around in a mounded shape. This stocky shape makes it a perfect thriller plant in a butterfly or hummingbird plant container. It can handle cold and heat in zones 5 through 9. Pugster has thick stems that can hold up the large bloom clusters, a cone-shaped bunch of tiny little blossoms. The blooms appear in summer and your Pugster will continue blooming through late summer or fall with no deadheading or effort on your part.

Pugster Periwinkle Butterfly Bush Care

Plant Pugster Periwinkle Butterfly Bush where it can get full sun. Buddleias grow well in poor or average soil with little water or fertilizing, but with good drainage. Just water your butterfly bush a little extra in its first year, especially during peak summer heat. When planting, place the base of the shrub slightly above the soil line. Then, all you have to do is prune the shrub in early spring as soon as you see green leaves forming at the base, cutting just above that new growth.

Pugster Periwinkle Butterfly Bush Spacing

If you want an entire row or border of short and colorful bushes for fragrance and to attract butterflies, plant several Pugster Periwinkle Butterfly Bush plants together. Space them about 3 to 4 feet apart.

Interesting Fact(s) - The name "Pugster" comes from the resemblance to a pug - short, stocky, and cute! There are five varieties we offer: Pugster Amethyst, Pugster Blue, Pugster Periwinkle, Pugster Pink, and Pugster White.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
