Looking for a Hydrangea that will turn heads and make a statement in your garden? Tuxedo® Red Hydrangea is the sophisticated choice. The large, almost black leaves contrast with gigantic rosey red blooms. This mophead type of Hydrangea will keep blooming all summer, filling your garden with blooms for the garden and the flower vase.
Hydrangeas are perfect specimen plants for the cottage garden. While most of these shrubs can get somewhat spindly and leggy through the summer, Tuxedo remains a nice compact mound with little upkeep. Hydrangeas traditionally are planted along other old-time favorites such as Hollyhock and Peonies. Tuxedo Red Hydrangea will take on a modern look when paired in a container with bright lime colored foliage plants such as Sweet Potato Vine or Golden Creeping Jenny.
Tuxedo® Red Hydrangea Care
Hydrangea shrubs appreciate a well drained and consistently moist soil. Extra irrigation may be needed during periods of heat. An average loam with either a low or high pH is acceptable. Part sun to a part shade spot in the garden will suit this shrub perfectly. Fertilization of Tuxedo® Red only needs to be done once a year, early in the spring as new growth emerges.
Pruning of Hydrangeas is very easy and best done early in the spring as growth starts. Dead, diseased and dying branches can be cut back to allow new, strong stems to grow. Tuxedo blooms on both old and current season stems. The pH of the soil that Hydrangeas are planted in will affect the color of their flowers. To maintain the deep red of Tuxedo® make sure the pH stays in the alkaline zone by adding a light top dressing of lime to the soil each fall.
Tuxedo® Red Hydrangea Spacing
The compact size of Tuxedo® Red makes it great for either garden planting or using in large containers of mixed plantings. When planting in the garden with other shrubs, a spacing of 3 feet center on center is required. A pot with at least a 24 inch diameter will be needed for container growing.
