Plant Features

Our Ruby Slippers Hydrangea Plant is an Oakleaf hydrangea with astounding color, not only on its astronomically large 9 inch flower spires, but on its astoundingly large oak-shaped leaves. First, the blossoms start out white! Yes, you heard right, they're white before changing to pink and then blushing brightly with ruby hues. And then, the foliage emerges light spring-green, morphing to deep, forest green, before putting on its fall wardrobe of opulent russet. Considered a dwarf, there is nothing puny at all about the brilliant show Ruby Slippers puts on!

Companion Planting: Aster, Astilbe, Dicentra, Viburnum

Wonderful Oakleaf Hydrangea

The two Ruby Slipper Oakleaf Hydrangeas I ordered from GrowJoy last spring are growing fast and look very healthy. I planted one in full shade and one in morning sun and afternoon shade, and both are thriving. I planted several Snow Queen Oakleaf Hydrangeas, and the Ruby Slipper Oakleaf Hydrangeas are outperforming them by leaps and bounds. The foliage is just beginning to change to a deep burgundy color, so they are also proving to be quite hardy. The Ruby Slippers is definitely an Oakleaf Hydrangea I recommend.

Beautiful Plants

My Ruby Slippers Oakleaf Hydrangeas arrived in great condition as they were very well packed. I just planted them, so I haven's seen any new growth, but I will return to post a review once they've grown a bit.
