'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 sunshine yellow! An easy-to-grow, multiseason shrub you will really enjoy in your landscape.

Seldom exceeding 4 to 6 feet tall and 4 feet wide, 'Ruby Spice' is pest and disease resistant. It is also tolerant to heat and humidity, so this cold hardy shrub is so easy to care for. 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 the sun. This shrub is ideal in a foundation planting but also looks great as a hedge or border to add some colorful foliage interest into your garden.
