Product information "Dog Hobble 'Royal Ruby'"

'Royal Ruby' scores with its compact growth and very decorative foliage. This is coppery in the spring, shiny dark green during the summer and gets a deep burgundy colour in autumn and during the winter. In addition, the plant is adorned with small, white flowers in May and June.
Colour for the shade

Dog hobble 'Royal Ruby' thrives best in partial shade or shade. It also requires acidic and humus-rich soils, making it easy to combine with rhododendrons, azaleas and lily-of-the-valley shrubs. With its compact, dense growth, it is a valuable ground cover. Generally, this evergreen plant is also suitable for planters – in very rough locations, it should then be protected when overwintered.
