Growing & Maintenance Tips for Buddleia x 'Miss Ruby'

Prefers well-drained, moist, fertile soils but can tolerate drought once established. Prefers medium moisture and full to part sun. Prune in late winter or early spring. In Northern states, this plant will die back to the ground though the roots are hardy. In the South, cut back as needed. To encourage reblooming, remove old spent blooms. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for recommended rate of application.
