Ruby Slippers Oakleaf HydrangeaBlows other dwarf Oakleaves away!
Write a review
Exclusive!(Hydrangea quercifolia 'Ruby Slippers')This new dwarf Hydrangea, from the National
Arboretum, has a wealth of great traits! It forms a
small, dense bush because of its short internodes (the
distance between leaves on the stems), but there's
nothing dwarf about the blooms! They average an
impressive 9″ long, but do not flop, as many large-flowered hydrangeas do, because their stems are
unusually strong. The blooms open white, quickly
turn pink and deepen to a gorgeous rose red that lasts
all summer, not just a short time in fall. And this is
one of the easiest of all Hydrangeas to grow, thriving
in heat or drought, sun or shade, and even poor soil,
as long as it is well drained. Songbirds welcome the
seeds in fall and winter, and the dense habit provides
good coverage for birds like Cardinals that like low-growing,
Zones 5-8, 3-1/2' tall, 5' wide, sun/shade, 4" pot.

They show this as being a deep red. Mine is pure white. Of course you do not know this until after you already planted it. If I wanted a white one I would have ordered it that way. I wanted the deep color shown on your site and in your catalog. Very very disappointed!

I love this plant so much that I am ordering two more. The one I ordered last spring performed beautifully. The fall colors were amazing too! While the blooms do start out white (as indicated in the description)they are quite beautiful and eventually turn to the beautiful dark red shown in the picture. I was very pleased with this plant!
