Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Glowing Embers’
(AKA ‘ALPENGLUHEN’) Outstanding German cultivar that has to be my FAVORITE of all hydrangeas! Vigorous growth but only to 3-4’, compact and well rounded shrub with lush green foliage… BIG mophead blooms to 8” across start out rose pink, build up to flaming crimson red and smolder down to tints of bronze purple over many, many weeks from June to frost! Any moist, decent soil will do, takes sun in northern areas to part shade (half day morning is perfect). Only have room for ONE hydrangea – this be the ONE!!
