Many feel that the bright color this Miss Ruby variety presents is the most vibrant of any Butterfly Bush available today. The delicious nectar the blooms produce, sweetened in the midday sun, creates a tempting call to hummingbirds, butterflies and bees…giving the “Butterfly Bush” its name.

Miss Ruby Butterfly Bush is a deciduous, well-branched bush that will grow to about 5 feet in height. In northern climates, it will die back to the ground for winter, but it can also be easily pruned.
Deadheading during the summer can increase your blooms, but isn’t necessary. Miss Ruby has no significant disease or insect issues, and both rabbits and deer tend to pass it by.
