Noteworthy Characteristics

'Ruby Spice' is the darkest pink (almost red) of all of the Summersweet / Sweet Pepperbush varieties. In summer, the wonderfully sweet fragrance of the rosy, bottlebrush-like blooms are irresistible to hummingbirds, butterflies, and other pollinating insects. The color show continues in fall when the handsome green foliage ignites into flaming shades of yellow! The shrub seldom exceeds 4 to 6 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet wide. An easy-to-grow, multiseason shrub you will not regret planting!

Uses

Ruby Spice is most useful in sunny landscape beds that have moisture retentive soil. It can also be useful near windows in foundation plantings or around outdoor living areas where the fragrance can be enjoyed. Make sure to plant this one in your butterfly and hummingbird gardens.

'Ruby Spice' is an easy to grow plant that is free of any pest and disease problems. It grows best in moist, slightly acid sandy soil in sun to light shade however tolerates a range of conditions including shade, acidic wet soil, and salt spray. The color is best in sun.

I had been looking in my area for another ruby spice & couldn't get one. I came across your website and was happy to get one. It came well packed in its container and I was surprised of the size and full of buds. Can't wait to see it bloom, thanks.
