Butterfly Bush 'Miss Ruby' - 3 Gal.


Buddleia x 'Miss Ruby'

Miss Ruby' is a sweetheart of a plant noteworthy not only for its dense, compact habit but also for its remarkably vivid, rich pink blooms with a striking red eye that lights up the summer garden with a color you just can't find on any other Buddleia! 'Miss Ruby' has shimmering silver foliage and its compact habit features a tight branching habit that results in waves of densely packed blooms on each plant from July through August. Like all Buddleia, 'Miss Ruby' is a magnet for Butterflies and Hummingbirds drawn by its highly visible color and abundant nectar supply. Plant this selection in a full sun, well drained location and don't be afraid to plant it with summer blooming perennials to produce a stunning mass of mid summer color!

Growing Tips

Prefers well-drained, moist, fertile soils but can tolerate drought once established. Prefers medium moisture and full to part sun. Prune in late winter or early spring. In Northern states, this plant will die back to the ground though the roots are hardy. In the South, cut back as needed. To encourage reblooming, remove old spent blooms. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for recommended rate of application.
