Pugster Blue Butterfly Bush features showy panicles of fragrant violet flowers with blue overtones and orange eyes at the ends of the branches from mid summer to mid fall. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It has grayish green deciduous foliage. The narrow leaves do not develop any appreciable fall color.

It is an open multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with a more or less rounded form. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition. This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. It is a good choice for attracting bees, butterflies and hummingbirds to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. Lovely when used in mass plantings or when used as a thriller or filler in large container gardens.
