Hydrangea Ruby Slippers, Oakleaf Hydrangea
Ruby Slippers Oakleaf Hydrangea, Hydrangea quercifolia, brings huge 9″ white flowers in the shape of cones on dwarf plants that grow only 3.5′ tall and 4-5′ wide. Its rich velvety flowers emerge white, but quickly turn pink before finally maturing to ruby red. Flowers are robust, remaining on the shrubs even in heavy rain, and will dry on the shrub, lasting throughout winter. Its flowers are beautiful in fresh cut and dried flower arrangements. Its large oak leaf shaped foliage turns brilliant red in fall.
Use as a gorgeous specimen or accent plant for foundations or gardens, around patios, or as an informal hedge. Fantastic for small gardens. Mature stems exfoliate to reveal rich dark inner bark that provides wonderful texture and color in winter.
Ruby Slippers Hydrangea was developed by the U.S. National Arboretum and has proven to be one of the Arboretum’s most popular introductions.
Plant in sun or shade. For best results plant in rich soil and keep well watered.
3 gallon pot.
Offered in-house and online. Subject to availability.
