Diamond Rouge® has abundant, long lasting flowers on strong stems that start out 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.
The flowers appear in profusion, carried on strong stems, with each flower head up to 35cms long. When they first appear, the blooms are white, but they soon start to change colour, first to pink and then a deeper shade of rich raspberry red. When in full bloom the plant is one of the most dramatic specimens you can have, try planted in a group for a really bold impact, or even as an unusual alternative plant to use for creating a summer blooming screen or hedge.
Extremely easy to grow, Diamant Rouge will flower regardless of climate, soil, pH or pruning, in fact even if you cut to near soil level in spring, it will regrow to around a metre tall and bloom again the same year - it is a truly remarkable plant for the summer and autumn landscape.
