If you're just familiar with white, pink and blue flowering hydrangeas, meet Glowing Embers, offering a refreshing new look. The blooms on this shrub open as lime green to white and progressively mature to a vibrant pinky red. With flowers at various development stages on the bush, the presentation is varied and textural. Like other hydrangeas, Glowing Embers is excellent for cutting.
Glowing Embers blooms on "old wood", the prior year's growth. If you choose to prune, do so right after first flowering finishes, in late June to early July. This allows the plant to set new buds for the following year's flowers.
