Ruby Slippers Oakleaf Hydrangea for Sale
Ruby Slippers Hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia 'Ruby Slippers') is a dwarf oakleaf hydrangea native to North America. Dark green, lobed oak leaves make for a stunning contrast with the flower clusters, ranging in color from pale pink to a deep rose.
As a hybrid cross between two popular oak leaf hydrangea cultivars: 'Snow Queen' and 'Pee Wee,' the Ruby Slippers plant boasts a more compact form, ruby red flowers, and a mahogany red fall foliage.
This compact and colorful shrub is perfect for smaller landscapes, and hedges, and is particularly astonishing in woodland gardens. The popular garden shrub also works to attract pollinators and is great for cut flower arrangements.
