Buddleia - Miss Ruby Butterfly Bush

'Miss Ruby' is a sweetheart of a plant noted for its compact habit and remarkably vivid, rich pink blooms. The flower color is unlike any other Buddleia. It is very well branched which results in lots of beautiful fragrant flowers. This new Butterfly Bush has silver-green leaves, and has a tight growth habit. Now even gardeners with limit space can attract butterflies and hummingbirds to their garden with 'Miss Ruby' Buddleia. Cut back heavily in the spring for better flowering. Dies back to the ground in the northern states (roots are hardy).


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Lawrenceville, Georgia
Elba, New York
Broadway, North Carolina
Rolesville, North Carolina
Wake Forest, North Carolina
Tomball, Texas
