Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

From the Magical™ hydrangea breeding program at Kolster, BV. in the Netherlands, this new selections has the deepest red blooms we’ve ever seen.

The color red often stirs up the emotional side of us. Frequently used to express love on Valentine’s Day, it excites our emotions and fills our hearts with positive energy. With Ruby Red in your garden, be prepared to feel the “stir”.  The reddest hydrangea to date, this beauty will dazzle you with glistening-red gemstone-like color and non-stop performance. Dark green leaves are nearly black when they emerge, and offer a lovely backdrop for the durable, repeat-flowering blooms. As the flowers age, they fade to a deeper, dusky red-wine color, holding the passion we feel from them alive in their senescence.
