Ruby Slippers Oakleaf Hydrangea for Sale

Ruby Slippers Hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia) is a dwarf oakleaf hydrangea native to North America. The proper planting time is early to midsummer, as this fast-growing plant produces a cluster of 9 inch, white, conical blooms that quickly age to deep pink by fall. Similarly, the dark green, deeply lobed foliage turns reddish-brown as it matures while the leaves stay strong and lively, even after heavy rain.

This compact and colorful shrub is perfect for smaller landscapes, hedges, and are particularly astonishing in woodland gardens. When cut and dried, the flowers never fade and are a striking addition to any interior. Even after the red blossoms fall away, rich red foliage prevails bringing you year-round interest. If you plant this hydrangea in partial sun and water weekly to maintain moisture, it will produce bountiful blooms that your neighbors will envy.

The Ruby Slippers Hydrangea will prosper if planted in partial shade, although it can tolerate full sun exposure with more frequent watering, as it is not drought resistant. I have found that it especially loves to soak in the afternoon sun, so it thrives when planted facing the south.

With occasional pruning and fertilization, this shrub is a breeze to take care of and a perfect way to liven up your landscaping. If you want more information about planting the right hydrangea for your landscape, read our blog Choosing Hydrangeas for your Garden.
