The Teller Red Hydrangea has some of the largest lacecap flowers of any hydrangea. They are a spectacular bold red-pink, with terrific garden impact. This large bush can become 7 feet tall and 5 feet wide, with beautiful rich-green leaves of strong texture and large size. The 7 to 8 inch heads have an outer circle of very large flowers, and the center is packed with many small flowers – all in glowing red. This shrub is ideal for the back of borders or along a wall or fence. Grow it around your home or out in wooded areas.

  • Very large lacecap flower heads of rich red-pink
  • Long lasting blooms, from mid-summer into fall
  • Large bold foliage is always attractive
  • Excellent variety for all warm zones
  • Blooms are purple in acid soils

Grow the Teller Red Hydrangea in partial shade, with morning sun, in light shade on a north-facing wall or fence, or beneath deciduous trees. The soil should be rich, moist and well-drained, and the clearest red colors develop in alkaline soils. In acid soils the blooms may be purple-blue. It is usually free of pests or diseases, but not deer-proof. Only prune lightly, removing weak growth in spring and dead flowers in fall.
