Lady in Red Hydrangea has lacecap flowers that open a pinkish white and turn a lush burgundy rose as they mature. The foliage is deep dark green but turns rich reddish-purple in the fall. Foliage has distinctive red stems and veins throughout the growing season that highlight this distinctive plant. A compact mounded habit, high mildew resistance, and sturdy stems make Lady in Red a special part of anyone�s garden. Dr. Michael Dirr and University of Georgia's first open pollinated introduction.
