It is an ideal plant for any garden.
Position: Full sun to part shade
Flowering: All year, with the main flushes in spring and autumn
Use: Ideal for garden borders instead of hedges, use them wherever you want flower all year. Plant them under other shrubs for ground cover or mix them with other colours in the Elite range in your garden beds.
Durability: Adequate water until established, then Elite Ruby is very tolerant of long dry periods.
Care: If Elite Ruby gets too bushy it can be sheared back to approximately half its size. Avoid pruning into old woody stems and during extreme heat.
