Quick Overview:

?Lady in Red? Hydrangea is remarkably beautiful throughout the growing season. The red veins, petioles and stems carry the color theme through the warm summer months. As fall?s cool weather arrives, the leaves develop a rich reddish-maroon color. ?Lady in Red? is also unique among hydrangea cultivars because of the high mildew resistance. This bigleaf hydrangea is in the lacecap group and its flowers range from white to light pink or pale blue.

Best grown in rich, medium moisture, well-drained soils in part shade. Tolerates full sun only if grown in consistently moist soils. Soil pH affects the flower color (blue in highly acidic soils and lilac to pink in slightly acidic to alkaline soils). Add aluminum sulfate to the soil to make the flowers bluer or add lime to the soil to make the flowers pinker. Begin soil treatments well in advance of flowering, as in late autumn or early spring. Plants generally need little pruning. If needed, prune immediately after flowering by cutting back flowering stems to a pair of healthy buds. Prune out weak or winter-damaged stems in late winter/early spring. Best to mulch plants year-round with 3" of shredded bark, peat or compost. Winter hardy to USDA Zone 6.
