Bed S: Plant 43
Syn. Diamant Rouge
This new Hydrangea, bred by Jean Renault, is exceptional for its abundant and long lasting flowers, and one of the reddest of paniculata cultivars. From early July, this shrub is covered in large inflorescences (up to 30-40 cm). Its strong stems bear abundant sterile flowers with large sepals. The luxuriant panicles open white then the “diamond” turns pink, becoming deeper in full bloom. In August the flower colour changes to a spectacular bright red to purple-red tint which lasts several weeks. The flower colour can vary with exposure, climate and soil type. Height : 1.50 m. Spread : 1.20 m.
