‘Ruby Slippers’

Oak shaped leaves turning deepest tones of burgundy in autumn are one of many attractive traits of Hydrangea ‘Ruby Slippers’ (H. quercifolia). This compact deciduous shrub reaches 3-4’ tall, an ideal size for home landscapes, and thrives in full or partial sun locations. As the plant matures, the bark on the branches exfoliate revealing warm brown tones, creating beauty in winter months. Large, tall lace-cap style blooms emerge white in summer, and age to rich ruby red tones. The blooms are long-lasting in heat and rain, and are a highlight in every summer garden. Very cold hardy and easy to grow, we recommend limited pruning on this variety to maximize bloom count the following year. Come meet ‘Ruby Slippers’ today and add interest to your landscape in every season.
