    Full-sized flowers on a dwarf plant!

    Meet Pugster Pinker® butterfly bush - the newest member of a unique series that offers full-sized flowers on dwarf plants. This compact butterfly bush reaches just 2'/.6 m tall and wide but has the large, full flowers normally seen on a much larger plant. It blooms non-stop from early summer through frost with very rich pink flowers, each with a tiny bright orange eye in the center. Thanks to thick, sturdy stems, the Pugster® series offers vastly improved hardiness and winter survival over other types of dwarf butterfly bush.

    - Rich pink flowers add drool-worthy impact to any garden or landscape.

    - Produces full-sized flowers on a compact, dwarf frame.
