The Ruby Blossom Hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla 'Ruby Blossom') is an alluring deciduous shrub known for its vibrant, multi-colored blooms and luxuriant green foliage. This showy plant adds a splash of color and visual interest to any garden or landscape, making it a favored choice among garden enthusiasts who appreciate striking floral displays.
The Ruby Blossom Hydrangea is a medium-sized shrub that typically grows to a height and width of 4-6 feet, making it suitable for borders, hedges, or as a focal point in the garden. It flourishes in USDA hardiness zones 5 to 9 and prefers well-draining, consistently moist soil. This hydrangea variety thrives in part shade, with protection from intense afternoon sunlight to prevent leaf scorch.
With its dense branching and rounded growth habit, the Ruby Blossom Hydrangea creates an eye-catching visual presence in the garden. Its adaptable size and stunning appearance make it a versatile choice for a range of landscape applications, from mixed borders to foundation plantings.
The most remarkable feature of the Ruby Blossom Hydrangea is its large, showy flower clusters, which consist of a combination of vibrant pink or blue hues, depending on the soil's pH level. In alkaline soil, the flowers exhibit a vivid pink color, while acidic soil produces deep blue blossoms. The blooms appear in summer and continue through fall, offering a long-lasting and dynamic display of color.
Each flower cluster is composed of an outer ring of large, sterile florets that surround a central mass of smaller, fertile flowers. The outer florets' color deepens toward the edges, creating a striking contrast that adds depth and dimension to the floral display.
In addition to its dazzling blooms, the Ruby Blossom Hydrangea boasts lush, deep green foliage that provides a fitting backdrop for the colorful flowers. The leaves are large, ovate, and serrated, with a slightly glossy appearance. The foliage remains verdant and healthy throughout the growing season, contributing texture and visual interest to the garden even when the plant is not in bloom.
