Ornamental Features

Ruby Snow™ Hydrangea features bold conical white flowers at the ends of the branches from mid summer to mid fall that fade to rose over time. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It has attractive green deciduous foliage. The pointy leaves are highly ornamental but do not develop any appreciable fall color. The dark red stems are very effective and add winter interest.

Planting & Growing Tips

Ruby Snow™ Hydrangea will grow to be about 3 feet tall at maturity extending to 4 feet tall with the flowers, with a spread of 5 feet. It tends to be a little leggy, with a typical clearance of 2 feet from the ground. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 40 years or more.

This shrub does best in full sun to partial shade. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type, but has a definite preference for acidic soils. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder microclimates. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
