Growing and Maintenance Tips

Hydrangea 'Invincible Ruby' is a low maintenance shrub for full sun to light shade. It grows best in rich, well drained soil with constant moisture. The bloom occurs on new wood so the plant can be cut back hard in the spring or just pruned to shape and remove winter damage. 'Invincible Ruby'  is repeat blooming so spent flowers can be removed if desired to keep the plant looking attractive all season.
