Hydrangea paniculata 'Rendia'

First Editions® Diamond Rouge® Hydrangea

Zones 3-8, Fast Growing

          Diamond Rouge Hydrangea is one of the reddest hydrangeas available.  It is a new variety with long lasting and very prolific flowers on long stems.  They start out stark white and progress to pink, raspberry red, and finally wine red.  They begin to bloom in July. 

Height: 4-5'

Width: 3-4'

Exposure: Full to part shade

The flowers of the Hydrangea shrub can be left to dry on the plant and then cut to display.  Cut the flowers on a day that is dry, with low humidity.  They can then be hung to finish drying or put upright in a vase.  Some people say that a hot, dry attic is the best place to dry the flowers and other people feel that they dry best in a cool, dark place.  Giving each stem space will keep the blooms from being crushed or misshapen. 

Hydrangea Care: Hydrangeas should be planted in at least partially shaded areas, especially in hot climates.  Bigleaf Hydrangeas do well on the north side of a house or planted at the edge of a wooded area.  They can tolerate more sun if they are not stressed by inadequate water.  Deeply shaded areas are not good for Hydrangeas and will actually decrease the number of blooms on the shrub. They will grow best in moist, well-drained soil.   Water when soil feels dry.

Pests and Disease:  In general hydrangeas are very easy to care for and seldom do they have any problems.  The following are a few issues that can affect hydrangeas: oystershell scale, two-spotted mite, nematodes, bacterial wilt, bud blight, powdery mildew, leaf spot, rust, leaf tier, rust, aphids, and rose chafer.
