Charm Red Hydrangea
Hydrangea macrophylla  'Charm'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 5a-9b  Find Your Zone

Note:   For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Cold Hardiness Zone 5a, where this Hydrangea variety is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know that it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and place back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

We're not sure if this one can really be called a 'red' Hydrangea, but the large, bold and beautiful deep rose-pink flower heads of 'Charm Red' sure are stunning in our gardens! This mophead hydrangea bears lots of showy flower clusters on cold tolerant plants with exceptionally glossy, dark green leaves. As with other H. macrophylla, flower color varies depending on soil pH. The flowers of "Charm" tend towards deep rose-pink but develop blue hues in highly acid soils. Its flowers are great for cutting and use in fresh or dried floral arrangements.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing naturally 4 to 5 feet tall and wide in a rounded mound, Charm Red Hydrangea can be grown in garden beds or containers. It is ideal for use as a specimen or accent in home foundation plantings, flowering shrub borders and perennial gardens. In larger landscape spaces plant in groupings or hedges for a stunning show of summer color! A fine addition to Hydrangea gardens, cottage gardens and cut flower gardens.

Suggested Spacing:  3 to 4 feet apart for solid hedges;  8 feet or more apart for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Charm Red Hydrangea is very easy to grow in most any moist but well-drained soil with average fertility and full sun to part shade in northern zones and part shade (morning sun with afternoon shade or filtered sun) in southern zones. We suggest 4 hours of direct sun light per day for best flowering. As with so many other ornamental plants, a constantly soggy or wet soil is problematic.

Note:  Charm Red is a Hydrangea macrophylla species that produces its flowers from buds that formed on "old wood" (during the previous year). This means that even though it is tempting to cut them back in the winter, when they are only bare sticks jutting out of the ground, don't do it. The flower buds are already formed and hidden in those bare sticks, so don't cut them off if you want flowers.
