A short selection that ages to deep raspberry.

Hydrangea paniculata Ruby Snow™

Creamy white cone-shaped flowers that age to bright, raspberry red on a compact, yet vigorous plant.

Mophead hydrangeas have been wildly popular in the gardening world, but if you’re looking for a flowering shrub to extend the season, panicle hydrangeas can’t be beat. Easy to grow with reliable flower power, they bloom on new wood – even in the coldest climates - which guarantees bright, billowy panicles year after year through the hottest months of summer.

Ruby Snow is a sensational new variety whose bright white panicles open in mid-summer. Closer to fall, as the nights cool, each cone shaped panicle turns ruby-red from the base up, leaving the tips topped in white like a snow cone. A compact form with strong stems, Ruby Snow can be planted in smaller gardens among other flowering shrubs and perennials. Plant in groupings or as exclamation marks along a garden path to draw the eye in. A true performer, even a beginning gardener will enjoy bragging rights with Ruby Snow!

Please note: We don't sell plants. Asking your local retailer or googling the plant name is the easiest way to find someone selling our plants.
