Without a doubt, Diamond Rouge® is the reddest H. paniculata on the market. This new variety has abundant, long lasting flowers on strong stems that start white and progress to pink, raspberry red and finally wine red. Flowers start blooming in July and take on red coloration earlier in the season than other pink paniculatas. Compared to Strawberry Sundae®, Diamond Rouge is slightly bigger and has distinct raspberry-red flowers that color earlier in the season. Bred by Jean Renault in France.
