I bought this plant to attract butterflies. It blooms well, but the butterflies ignore it. I will have to dig it up and replace it with something that the butterflies like.
Pugster Pinker® Butterfly Bush Buddleia x
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.
