    Design IdeasThis Hydrangea's brilliant red highlights in fall are ideal for extending the interest in shrub borders beyond the flowering season. Also lends a fiery hue to otherwise deep-green shade gardens. Plant as an individual to appreciate the unique foliage texture and leaf shape, or in a cluster to intensify its impact in the garden. Not as prim and proper as the traditional Hydrangea, it is a natural in the woodland scene and among rangy natives.

    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).
