Comment:

Thanks to the plant breeding efforts of Dr. Dennis Werner, NC State University has released a series of new and improved butterfly bushes.  This cultivar has a compact habit and remarkably vivid rich pink flowers.  Some observers say the magenta blossoms on 'Miss Ruby' are more vibrant than any other Buddleja variety being sold.

'Miss Ruby' Butterfly Bush has an upright, globe shape with numerous lateral branches.  It should be grown as a specimen plant in the landscape or used in a mixed border of plants.  Although compact in habit, don't forget this cultivar will reach a height of 5 feet, so give it plenty of space to grow.

Butterfly bushes require full sun and good soil drainage to thrive.  'Miss Ruby' attracts butterflies in abundance.  In 2008 the United Kingdom's Royal Horticultural Society plant popularity poll ranked 'Miss Ruby' as its number one (out of 97 varieties) butterfly bush culitvar!
