A unique, unusual red flowering Hydrangea macrophylla that blooms on new wood. A hardy plant that prefers the east side of a house or building where there is protection from afternoon heat. Maintain even moisture for best results. Mulch well in fall and cut back any dead tips in spring for best results. Mop head flowers are red, but in acidic soils are purplish. The blooms age to a lavender and the foliage has an incredible burgundy coloration (see photo). This is a very unique colored Hydrangea flower. This is a top selling hydrangea and customers have been raving about it.
