- Flowers change colors over the whole growing season
- Full sun or light shade
- Deepest red available in paniculatas
Diamond Rouge Hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata) is a real innovation! It is, without a doubt, the reddest paniculata hydrangea available to the home gardener today. This plant is spectacular in bloom from June to October. In late June the flowers on Diamond Rouge emerge pristine white. They change to pink as they age and then turn a delicious shade of raspberry red.
Finally they turn a deep wine red from August to the first frost. This fantastic red flower color lasts well into fall and hydrangea flowers are some of the best for drying for winter color. Soil pH does not affect bloom color.
Diamond Rouge is a good grower with a great bushy shape that looks great in a perennial border. If you don’t have a perennial border, try it in a large pot where it will do equally well. The foliage is naturally spotted and the leaves turn a pretty shade of orange in the fall to add to the already great show.
