A small plant with big impact!

Pugster Amethyst butterfly bush is a versatile, space-saving dwarf variety with big, beautiful blooms of clear amethyst purple. Each one is dotted with a cute yellow eye in the center and emits the sweetest honey scent. You'll love it, but not as much as the butterflies it attracts, and they flock to it by the score. 

Pugster butterfly bushes also offer thick, sturdy stems that give them better ability to withstand cold weather, too, so they're an ideal choice for gardeners in USDA zone 5.

Great bush

Love the pugster butterfly bushes. Fast shipping and received a nice and healthy plant.


Plants were fried upon arrival in June. Unable to revive. Contacted Great Gardener and they immediate ask if I would prefer refund or replacement. Replacements to arrive the end of September. Will update this review at that time.

Hello! We're sorry that you received plants not up to our standards. But, we are happy to hear that our customer service team was able to set up a replacement order for you when the weather cools of. Happy Gardening!
