(Syn. 'Alpengluhen') Sunglasses are optional for this beauty. Abundantly produced over a 2- to 3-month growing season that begins in midsummer, its immense flowerheads (8 inches or more across) start out white, then turn pink and slowly shade to a deep pinkish-red or purple, with tints like a fading sunset.

Hydrangea macrophylla 'Alpengluhen' (Glowing Embers) was developed almost 50 years ago, and is still considered the finest mophead. This German classic has often been difficult to find and, like all of our Hydrangeas, is among the showiest of summer- and autumn-flowering woody plants.

Compact Glowing Embers is quite vigorous, only 3 feet tall and wide, with large, bold green leaves little troubled by pest or disease. Easy to grow in moist, well-drained soil in full to part shade (it takes more sun than most), it performs well on the coast.

I was so impressed when I opened the package with my new hydrangea. I've ordered from many companies and the quality of plant I received was by far the best from Park Seed. The plant is multi-branched and in fabulous condition! I can't wait to see this beauty as she continues to grow and put out flowers!!

Lives up to its name

I ordered 3 of these. Two were substantially larger than the third, but the third tiny plant had multiple flower buds on it. When it bloomed, the color was outstanding! Let's just hope this beauty stays as gorgeous in my acid soil. Curious to see how the color will change.
