This showstopper explodes with Mophead blooms on reddish stems that cover rounded, compact plants. Blooms mature to shades of purple or rosy red (depending on soil pH) extending the display into fall, followed by rich, burgundy-red foliage. Flowering occurs on both old wood and new growth, assuring flowers even after a severe winter. ‘P11HM-11’ PPAF
Hydrangea is a valuable genus of some 100 species of shrubs and vines grown for their large and very showy flower heads. They are at their best in summer and fall -- quiet time for most woody plants -- and are worth having for that reason alone. For information on Hydrangea care, click on Growing Guide.
