'Ruby Spice' is the darkest red of all of the Summersweet varieties. This lovely shrub produces sweetly fragrant rosy blooms in late summer. Then in autumn, the handsome green foliage ignites into flaming shades of yellow! An easy-to-grow, multiseason shrub you will really enjoy.

Seldom exceeding 4 to 6 feet tall and 4 feet wide, 'Ruby Spice' is pest and disease free. It grows best in moist, slightly acid sandy soil in sun to light shade, though as a hardy native shrub, it tolerates a range of conditions (including shade, acidic wet soil, and salt spray). The color is best in sun. Ideal in a foundation planting.

Lovely Native Shrub

This is a beauty! This summer bloomer can put on a nice show. 'Ruby Spice' has pretty flowers that smell good too. Once established, it seems immune to whatever nature has to throw at it--drought, heat, cold winters, wet soils. I was standing several feet away and could smell those lovely ruby flowers. A winner!
