Ruby rose
 
Hi peeps, I'm looking for some help from you green fingered types out there.

It's my parents ruby wedding anniversary in the next couple of weeks and i'm thinking of getting them a ruby rose tree preferably one for a container so it can be moved about the garden as they wish, what i'm after is one with a bit of scent and that produces plenty flowers for the summer, and has a lovely flower too it.

Can anyone recommend a good plant supplier that i can order from to get delivered to them, or a type of rose to be looking for?

Any help would be very much appreciated, cheers.

Craig.

Hi Boron,

Thanks for your reply, I'm located in scotland and its usually freezing, haha.

I sorted it out by just going to my local Dobbies garden centre, they had what i was looking for, i just hope it's a healthy enough plant that'll last a while.

Craig.

Rubies are known for its deep red color, rubies can also come in beautiful undertones of reddish purple. Because of the ruby's ability to vary in dark and light shades according to light, the ruby has found itself on top of women's most favorite fashion accessory or fashion jewelry list for evening events and soirees.

Planting Zones for Miss Ruby Butterfly Bush:
Grow this Buddleia shrub in planting zones 5-9.
Sun and Soil Requirements for Miss Ruby Butterfly Bush:
Grow in full sun and in well-drained, loamy soil enriched with humus. Although reasonably drought-tolerant once established, make sure you water these plants during times of extreme heat. During one hot spell, I apparently failed to provide my shrubs with enough water; as a result, some of the flower buds dried up.
Care for Miss Ruby Butterfly Bush:
Mulch Buddleia in the fall for winter protection in cold climates. Fortunately, the plants are deer-resistant.
