Discover the fascinating Dictamnus Albus Rubra, more commonly known as the Rubra Gas Plant, known for its exceptional attribute of being a "Burning-bush". With its ash-like leaves, large elegant flowers in red, white, striped or blue hues and remarkable vertical growth, it's a popular choice for garden borders or woodlands. This plant dislikes root disturbance, so it's best planted into a permanent position as soon as possible. It's an easily grown, drought-tolerant plant that thrives in dry sunny positions with some lime, showcasing its full beauty in warm places. Emitting an aromatic fragrance of lemon peel that evolves into fine balsam when bruised, this plant is enveloped by an essential oil in the summer months. Unique to this plant, this oil can ignite and burn briefly without causing harm, thereby earning the moniker "Burning-bush". The link to volatile oils giving birth to the biblical reference of burning bush is often suggested. Being a long-lived plant, it forms a substantial clump in the garden, promising an enduring beauty to your landscape. Indulge in the transformation and enigmatic charisma of the Rubra Gas Plant today.
