I’m one of those people who thinks a garden without a hydrangea would seem incomplete. And because it provides interest in all seasons, oakleaf hydrangea is one of the best. Not everyone, however, has enough garden real estate to devote to such a large plant. Enter ‘Ruby Slippers’, a new compact form of oakleaf hydrangea, which is a must-have for smaller spaces. Developed by one of the premier hydrangea hybridizers, Sandra Reed of the U.S. National Arboretum, ‘Ruby Slippers’ boasts a multitude of stocky flowers that show up as white and then mature to striking deep rose. With its space-conscious habit and vibrant blooms, ‘Ruby Slippers’ will soon become a hugely popular flowering shrub.
