A gorgeous little shrub for year-round colour in your garden. Beautiful, lush, burgundy foliage with pink highlights, native to Central and South America. Ruby Leaf carries white to cream flowers but is mainly grown for its coloured foliage. It is very fast growing and suitable as a low hedge, ground cover plant, or general colourful garden fill. Grows to around half a meter tall.
This plant should be cut back regularly to maintain a nice compact growth habit, as it can become a little unruly. It is best grown in a sunny to part shaded position, in a frost free position.
