Comments: An excellent hydrangea for the woodland setting. Provide shade during the heat of the day. Hydrangeas require a considerable amount of water during the summer months. The reddish-pink flowers turn a darker red with age before turning brown at the end of the summer. Hydrangea flowers dry well for use in autumn and holiday arrangements.
