Growing and Maintenance Tips

Hydrangea 'Diamond Rouge' is an easy care shrub requiring organically rich, well drained soil in full sun to light shade. It becomes lanky in too much shade. It is very hardy, pest free and thrives in most garden situations. Pruning should be done in early spring because it blooms on new wood.
