Outstanding color changes with the seasons! This true dwarf produces incredible 9" long clusters of flowers in early summer in full sun or partial shade. Blossoms start out white and gradually turn pink then red as summer progresses. In fall, oakleaf-shaped foliage turns a fiery scarlet and burgundy. The show continues into winter as the cinnamon bark exfoliates and the large blooms dry atop strong stems. This bushy shrub grows only 3½-4' tall and 5' wide, and its large decorative leaves can withstand summer sun, strong wind and heavy rain. Ships in 4" pot. Zones 5-8. Hydrangea quercifolia 'Ruby Slippers'. Full Sun to Partial Shade.

HEALTHY Review by KY GIRL - Ky, KY
Posted on 2013-05-31

"I RECEIVED THIS PLANT ABOUT 2 MONTHS AGO. WHEN I OPENED THE BOX I WAS SURPRISED AT THE SIZE OF THE PLANT, ABOUT 12 INCHES TALL. IT WAS VERY HEALTHY AND HAD QUITE A FEW LEAVES AND ALSO A SMALL FLOWER STARTING AT THE TOP OF THE PLANT. SO NOW 32 MONTHS LATER IS IT IN FULL BLOOM AND THE PLANTS IS JUST GETTING BIGGER EVERYDAY."
