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.
