Lady in Red - More like 'Lady in Dead'

16 years ago

Okay ---- I live in the south where 'Lady in Red' is supposed to thrive. So far it's been a dud!!! I bought it last spring and the flowers quickly turned gray then brown then they were gone. I figured it was because it was new and sending all its energy to its roots. This year once again - lots of pretty pale lilac blooms that have now all turned brown. What gives --- From all the materials I've seen they are supposed to age to a beautiful red --- nope! Interesting too because its the only hydrangea I have that doesn't hold on to its flowers into the fall. It is in shade too btw - so it isn't because of sun burn. Anybody have the same thing to report - or have a solution? Thanks!
