We have grown this ever-perfect hydrangea for years and always sell out. Sometimes called "Glowing Embers" here in the US, the flower is crimson red when mature. A compact growing plant with shiny, dark green leaves and glowing red blooms make this a winner. Plant them in a hedge and it will add rich color and warmth to your garden. Alpengluhen Rates a "10" for foliage and bloom. Enjoy!
