The Cardinal Red Hydrangea is a beautiful, medium-sized shrub with enormous heads of blossoms in a rich shade or red or mauve, depending on your soil type. In the center of each bloom is a bright blue eye, and the edges of the petals are fringed. These spectacular domes of color develop gradually from attractive pastel-green young flowers, coloring slowly through the late spring and early summer, so that they are in full glory just when most other flowers in the garden have finished blooming. These bushes are shade tolerant, and they are an ideal way to brighten those shady spots on the north side of your home, or underneath deciduous trees. For months of color and interest in areas you thought were difficult to fill, this plant is the number one choice. It can also be grown in large tubs, to brighten your terrace or patio.

  • Huge domes of sparking red blossoms
  • Blooms in late summer after most other flowers
  • Perfect choice for shady areas
  • Large rounded bushes fill spaces effectively
  • Easily-grown garden classic shrub

Grow the Cardinal Red Hydrangea in a rich soil that is not too dry. These plants do best with plenty of organic material and a regular supply of water. It is reasonably drought resistant once well established in your garden. The exact flower color will vary with your soil. In alkaline soils, it will be a rich pink-red color, and in acidic soils it will become mauve, but whatever your soil, it will be truly beautiful. This shrub has no significant pests or diseases, and it is easy to grow in any partially, or even fully shaded spot in your garden.
