Ruby Slippers Oakleaf Hydrangeas In Bloom - June 2022
This Spring, I planted a pair of Ruby Slippers Oakleaf Hydrangeas in our backyard in the north bed, behind the Weeping Nootka Cypress and right in a colony with a dwarf Alice Oakleaf Hydrangea that I moved over there a couple of seasons ago. These two small Oakleaf Hydrangeas were from the Morton Arboretum Plant Sale this year. As soon as I planted them, the dang rabbits started attacking them, so I kept a little ring of chicken wire around each of them. That seemed to keep the foliage going and now we're seeing the first blooms. See below for a photo of the two Ruby Slippers (in the back) showing their first, tall white blooms.
