A Must See Color Show

The 'Glowing Embers' Hydrangea is a brilliantly vibrant flower with outrageously pink flowerheads. Developed almost 50 years ago, 'Glowing Embers' is still thought to be one of the finest hydrangeas with its enormous and gorgeous flowerheads.

With a bloom season that lasts from midsummer through fall, the 'Glowing Embers' Hydrangea starts blooming with massive, 8-inches-plus flowerheads that begin as a lime green. As they mature they turn delicate white before shading into vibrant pink, finally stopping at deep, rich fuchsia or purple with tints of red and orange. These vivid flowerheads are dramatically set against dense, rich green foliage that have large, leafy leaves.

The 'Glowing Embers' Hydrangea is a compact shrub that only grows to a height and width of 3 feet. It grows well in partial shade(it takes more sun than most)and in soil that is moist and well-drained. It is disease and pest resistant. This beautiful plant makes an excellent border or low hedge. It can also be cut and placed with other flowers or as a stand-alone flower.

Lives up to its name

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

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.
