This compact Butterfly Bush from Proven Winners® has created a small wonder with a big bang.  The Pugster Amethyst®; only reaches a mature height of 24 inches with a 2 to 3 foot mature width.  Fragrant Purple flowers are the size you would expect to see on a much larger plant. Thanks to its thick, sturdy stems this butterfly bush has no problem supporting its bountiful flowers.  The sturdy stems also contribute to improved winter hardiness and winter survival. The Pugster Amethyst will produce blooms from early Spring until frost. This compact bush is great in most any sunny setting and will add nature to any landscape attracting butterflies and hummingbirds.

First time I saw the Pugster series of butterfly bushes was at my friends nursery. From a distance, there were about 100 of each of these- the blooms! I thought, whats that?! I’ve got to grow those. Pugster butterflies are dwarf, all have amazing brightly colored blooms, love water, and re-bloom throughout the growing season.
