This hot new plant is the best red lacecap we've seen since Macrophylla Kardinal. In acidic soil, this variety is a show-stopping deep purple. The dark green leaves are slightly glossy and are plentiful around strong upright stems. This is a great cut flower, very unusual for lacecap hydrangeas. Don't miss this variety! Bred in Switzerland at the Federal Research Institute for Horticulture in 1987.
