The Miss Ruby Butterfly Bush is a new, non-invasive variety of this popular garden plant. It grows as a dense mound of arching branches, with long, tapering grey-green leaves. It will bloom non-stop from mid-summer to late fall. The flowers are bright purple-red, in spikes about 4 inches long. This is a very easy plant to grow in a sunny location in well-drained soil, and it grows no more than 5 feet tall, and the same across. Many different varieties of butterflies will come to your garden, as well as hummingbirds, all attracted to the nectar the flowers produce. Children love to watch the butterflies, making is an ideal plant for a children’s garden. It can also be planted among other flowering shrubs, or among annual and perennial flowers. It will grow well in tubs and pots, bringing color to your patio, and it really doesn’t need much care, being drought resistant once established, and free of pests or diseases.

  • Bright, purple-red spikes of tiny blossoms
  • A magnet for butterflies and humming birds
  • Blooms continuously mid-summer through fall
  • Medium-sized arching shrub reaching 5 feet
  • Very easy plant for beginners and children to grow

Choose a sunny spot in well-drained soil for your Miss Ruby Butterfly Bush. It is hardy to zone 5 and grows well in dry soils, especially in the colder areas. Flowers can be trimmed once they fade, but this is not really necessary, as they do not produce seed. Spring pruning is desirable, and this is the only care needed by this tough plant. In colder areas it may die back to the ground in winter, but don’t worry, it will quickly re-sprout and be blooming away by mid-summer, brightening your summer garden, and continuing right up until the first frost.
