Gardeners' Notes:

Positive htop On Jan 19, 2008, htop from San Antonio, TX (Zone 8b) wrote:

Ruby Blush' leaves have ruby coloring along the edges and it can extend quite far up the leaves. The amount of coloring is dependent upon the amount of light it receives as well as temperatures. It has more coloring in cooler weather and with more light. I have not been able to determine if 'Ruby Blush' is a cultivar or a variety. Propagation methods include
by offsets (easiest), stem cuttings, leaf cuttings and by seeds if it is a variety and not a cultivar or hybrid.
