The Glowing Embers Hydrangea is a special, stable color form of the mophead hydrangea, that will hold its gorgeous pink color in all kinds of soil. This is particularly helpful to gardeners on acid soils, who want to complement their blue hydrangeas with pink colors. This allows you to extend the color palette of summer flowers, and bring bright, rich tones to the shady parts of your garden. This plant grows into a broad, rounded shrub between 3 and 5 feet tall, and a little broader than that, giving good structure and form to your beds. Use it in partially or fully-shaded areas, in beds, along walkways or drives, and on the shady side of your home. Add it to woodland gardens among your other shade-loving plants. It flowers in summer, when many other plants have finished blooming, so this is the best way to extend the flowering season and plant your shady areas – all with just one plant.

  • Enormous domes of bold red-pink flowers
  • Stable color – stays pink even in acid soils
  • Summer blooming for color after the spring show
  • Grows well in partial or full shade
  • Water regularly for lush, rich growth

Grow the Glowing Embers Hydrangea in any kind of well-drained soil. Add rich organic material to hold moisture and feed your plant. These plants are easily grown, and they will thrive for you if you water regularly. New plants should be watered well twice a week in the summer, and older plants at least once a week during dry weather. Mulch in spring to keep the soil moist, and prune in late winter or early spring, keeping a structure of older wood to ensure plenty of blooms. This superb plant is ideal for shady gardens in warmer parts of the country.
