Invincibelle® Ruby Hydrangea (Hydrangea arborescens 'NCHA3') is the first-ever red-flowered Hydrangea - not some shade of pink, but an almost true burgundy red. The blooms start out a deep burgundy in the summer and slowly fade to a bright red and silvery pink - a truly eye-catching color combo!
The flowers just keep coming all summer and into fall, too. The massive blooms are held high on strong stems that are great for cutting. It only takes one of these huge flower blooms to fill a bowl on your table. Invincibelle® Ruby has large deep green leaves that really give the flowers center stage.
The handsome quilted and textured foliage makes them incredible background plants throughout the garden, even when not in bloom! Growing 3-4 feet in mature height and 2-3 feet in width. Gaining growth moderately throughout USDA growing zones 3-9, making these Smooth Hydrangea very cold-hardy!
Invincibelle® Ruby looks great in mixed borders and your home's foundation plantings. These smaller and more compact Hydrangeas are highly adaptable in large containers and planters! It's a must-have in a mass planting and for naturalizing a garden. These shrubs naturally form suckers from the base and form dense colonies that add privacy, bird safe havens and low screening. Any real cutting garden is empty without one, too. The dried flowers look great if left on the shrub all winter, but they are fantastic if dried and brought inside for the dreary winter months.
This is a garden showpiece for sure! Add one of these brilliant red blossoms are spectacular focal points and specimens! Tuck into any cottage bed or border, anchor garden plantings, or use as a foundation planting along a protected side of your home! Brighten your porch or patio, seating areas and even balconies with these compact deciduous shrubs!
Hydrangeas grow best and strongest growth in full sun and partial shade, favoring morning sun and afternoon shade in the hottest of the USDA growing zones 3-9. Plant Hydrangea in moderate, and consistent moisture and enriched organic soil. Prune in early spring, removing dead, damaged or old branching, and cutting the plant down by a third for size control. Remove suckers at any time throughout the year!
