Pictures Do Deceive
Jeff Lovelace from NC wrote on February 15, 2018

I've had this one for 15 years. It has never been "red" nor has it glowed and embers. The description of this plant is deceiving, and so are the photos. I asked about the changing color of my hydrangea after the first year that it was in the ground, and the horticulturist at Wayside told me to add more lime. I added a gallon of lime and the end result changed the flowers from pink to a deeper pink and that was it. This is never going to resemble its name, so be aware.

Lives up to its name

I ordered 3 of these. Two were substantially larger than the third, but the third tiny plant had multiple flower buds on it. When it bloomed, the color was outstanding! Let's just hope this beauty stays as gorgeous in my acid soil. Curious to see how the color will change.
