Creamy white flower spikes kindle into deep pink with fiery carmine highlights on red stems on neat, compact plants before other varieties, from early summer and clear through to September. The flower color is not affected by soil pH so feel free to combine with blue or rose hydrangeas without the loss of this rare rich shade. Plants are compact, growing only 3-5’ tall, perfect for containers or flower or shrub borders. Blooms on new and repeats on old wood for long lasting bloom. Tolerates both heat and cold: plant in part shade in hot locations, takes full sun in cooler climates.
