Also known as 'Summersweet' this lovely medium sized shrub is perfect for bringing late summer colour to the garden.
'Ruby Spice' produces an abundance of rosy pink, bottlebrush flowers in late summer and autumn. Not only do the flowers look incredible bursting from the glossy deep-green foliage, but they also bear a mesmerising sweet clove fragrance that is highly attractive to butterflies, bees and other beneficial pollinators and garden visitors. Your garden will be buzzing with life throughout summer!
'Ruby Spice' is ever so easy to grow and maintain and is both happy in full sun but will also tolerate full shade so it's a great choice for those awkward shady corners. It prefers acidic soil so we recommend incorporating plenty of peat or ericaceous compost for best results, especially when growing in a container.
Easy to care for needing just an occasional light trim to shape, 'Ruby Spice' is trouble free but has big rewards!
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
Reaching a height and spread of 150cm (5ft).
