'Lady In Red' Hydrangea?

paminpa(z6, Pa.)May 18, 2008

I planted this variety for the first time last year, it died back considerably for me this winter, some minor stems left -- however it's quite healthy now and growing taller each week.

Anyone else have much experience with this hydrangea, I believe this one blooms on old wood, so I'm figuring not seeing much if anything in blooms this year.

I had thought it was a rebloomer, but your mention and something I saw in print is making me doubt my memory. Mine came back fabulously, and Houston is not prime hydrangea territory. I have it in a large container on the edge of my shade porch on the sheltered side of my house. It's kind of funny, it just hit me when I started to comment that all the blooms are on one side of the bush, that it is the sunny side. Probably not coincidental, huh?
Anyway, I like it a lot, and maybe I'll post some pics when the flowers open fully.
