The hydrangea breeders of the Vims Red grade is based on the achievements accumulated over many years. Despite the recent appearance, the culture was valued very high. It’s time to figure out the main characteristics of the plant and find out how to grow it.
Miscellaneous hydrangea “Wims Red” differs from other representatives of this family by the fact that the variety has a very low growth. Plant cannot be higher than 1.5 m. Shoots scatter on the sides of the styre, which creates a stunning external effect. In this case, inflorescences reach 0.3-0.4 m in length. For inflorescences, the form of the narrowed pyramid is characteristic.
In the description of the WIM’s RED variety, not only a small height, but also limited fertility of flowers (their 50%). Sterile half colors usually 4 blades. The flower diameter is from 0.05 to 0.07 m. This indicator is the same over the entire length of the brush. Therefore, inflorescences look like.
The earliest flowers are white, gradually they pose. And with the onset of autumn, hydrangea is covered with a wine-red mass. The main thing is not even in an attractive red color, but in extremely strong, as if honey, aroma. “Vims Red” is distinguished by big dark green having a light reddish tint, leaflets. The maximum of the grace they reach the autumn months as only foliage are covered with plots with metal glitter.
This brilliance continuously flows into various shades:
For shoots, dark red color is characteristic. Flowering frequency – once a year. It happens on last year’s shoots. Winter hardiness at Vims Red is decent – the plant survival is guaranteed even with frost to 30 degrees. But still, the young piglery is required to cover at the end of autumn and mulch; Only from the third year of development it is not necessary.
Overview of hydrangea in the video below.
Key requirements When growing this variety of decorative plants, it turns out:
- The quality of the soil and its chemical composition;
- humidity level;
- Characteristics of lighting.
“Wims Red” is optimally developing with weak acidity of the Earth. Plots with neutral acid-alkaline balance. However, it is impossible to get flowers of bright color. Alkaline Earth and destroy the Miscellaneous Hydrangea. Therefore, put it there, where lime was laid, it is categorically impossible.
The high fertile quality of the Earth and the presence of a significant amount of organics are desirable. On the sand of hydrangea, poorly developing. They can slow down. For acidification of the Earth, brown peat or sawdust. It is forbidden to add not only lime to the soil, but also ash, and chalk.
Temperature and humidity
Whiteline Hydrangees need to provide half. Direct sunlight should fall on them only in early morning or evening hours. For the day of the bushes cover up higher plants or buildings. In principle, you can grow this shrub and in full shadow. However, with a shortage of lighting, bloom becomes unreasonably scarce.
Moisture of hydrangea is needed in large quantities. Sometimes even special irrigation is not enough. Therefore, it is desirable to plant this variety in wet places. Of course, the land should not be wetlable – it is also bad. If the summer lacks naturally incoming water, additional irrigation is required.
How to plant?
If you have to land on a wetland, you need to compensate for this negative. Solution of the problem turns out to be laying in the landing bowl of a thick drainage layer. It is created from:
- brick battle;
- small stones and gravel;
- Keramzit large fractions.
You do not advise you to choose an open site not only because of excessive lighting by the Sun, but also because of the big hazard of the wind. In its strengths, individual flowers and leaves can be broken. It creates strong interference of the normal life of hydrangea. Restored after such a shock it slowly.
A landing pit must have a diameter of 0.5 m and a depth of 0.4 m. It is necessary to fill this recess on 1/3. The required primer mix includes:
- Garden land;
- washed and crumpled sand;
- Selecting humus.
Saplot put in a pit vertically. Root system should be covered with soil residues. Strong Blowing is not recommended. Normally, the root neck is kept at the soil level. The planted bush is immediately watered, and so that the moisture in the ground remains, sprinkled with mulch.
How to care for?
Care of the Misseling Hydrangea “Wims Red” relatively simple. It should be categorically avoided soil cutting. Roots of the plant will not be able to fully provide it with water. If the heat comes, it is necessary to water the flower once every 3-7 days. On 1 bush at the same time 10 liters of water.
As soon as the hydrangea of the polita, the soil around it is thoroughly loose. When the vegetation and bloom goes, it is up to 14 days. In the spring (up to half of May) use nitrogen fertilizers. Later, potassium and phosphorus are used for feeding, otherwise it is impossible to guarantee lush flowering. Immediately before the beginning of winter, form a layer of mulching from humoring.
The shoots of “Vims Red” need to be pressed to the ground and cover the layer. Garden arcs are put over it and non-woven material stretches. Edges pressed as hard as possible. If the wind blows them, the consequences can be extremely sad.
Cut off Hydrangea twice per year. With the onset of spring, you can form a bush. It is important to have time to do this before the movement of juices. Start work with removing stirred and witty shoots. They are cleaned under the root, so that there are no small hemp. When they form a crown, shoots simply cut to get the necessary geometry.
The shoots of last year try to keep not cutting. This allows you to lay more flower kidney. Only the old shrub must be rejuvenated by trimming. It is recommended to leave in stock 5 or 6 developed branches.
IMPORTANT: All shoots, except for strong and well folded, must be cut off without any pity. Inexperienced flowerflowers often cut all shoots at the end of autumn. So do it categorically impossible. Old branches are cut, leaving the height of exactly 0.1 m. Then you can count on the appearance of a new young row. It will bloom in the next season. Sanitary trim needed before winter. Inflorescences cut off necessarily; Although they say sometimes that they are beautiful, under the snow load and under the pressure of the wind parts of the plant can break.
So that the buds do not penetrate into severe cold, it is required to cover the plant agricultural plants. From the primary materials it replaces the straw, but it is somewhat less practical.
Growth accelerators allow the appearance of buds in the first year of life, but only for the next season, when a good root system is formed, you can expect flowering.
Diseases and pests
“Wims Red” moderately resistant to pathological conditions. Special risk is associated with:
- tormenty dew;
Among these diseases, chlorosis is mainly found. Prevent it helps fabrication of plants with salts of iron. The procedure is carried out 2 times a month. If the hydrangea is still sick, the chelate of iron will be effective. In the fight against pathological fungi, only branded insecticides are used, suitable for the spectrum of action; Homemade funds are ineffective. Any pests dangerous for “Wims Red”, perfectly eliminates the preparation of “Aktara”.
Against pulse dew and leaf spotting needed:
- “Ridomil Gold”.
Some disease begins due to improper content and bad life conditions. The same chlorosis is provoked by the deficiency of iron or excessive lime in the soil. At the same time, the simultaneous effect of such factors strengthens their negative effect. Signs of chlorosis are:
- Yellowing foliage;
- gradual drying them;
- Preservation of green coloration.
Chlorosis can cover the sheet entirely or lead to the formation of large spots on it. Both of these manifestations are equally dangerous and deserve immediate measures. If there is no idea that it was the reason for the ailment, it is necessary to adjust the acid-alkaline balance of the Earth. In addition to acidifying peat, it can be improved using Al2 (SO4) 3. The number of reagents is determined by the level of parsing of soil and can be from 2 to 5 kg per 1 m2.
Prevent chlorosis helps watering rainwater or using softeners. Instead of them, sometimes use water settling within a few days. If these measures do not help, it is urgent to reduce the introduction of mineral fertilizers. Be sure to check their composition to eliminate the appearance of unwanted components. At home for feeding iron, a solution is used: 2 g of vitriol on 1 liter of water.
If you need to use more or less vapor, the amount of fluid is counted accordingly. Mitigation of the solution is achieved by adding citric acid.
IMPORTANT: If the bush in the started state, you need to give preference to the store.
From strong sunlight Hydrangea can get burns. Sick places are thinned and can even dry. The only way to treat is the shading of problem culture.
The combination of excessively bright lighting and lack of water leads to the blackery of foliage. Sometimes the disease begins with the appearance of brown border. The lack of attention to the problem turns into the fact that it is aggravated – by itself, this condition does not pass. The basic measure of treatment is the shading of a flower and watering it as soft water. Then over time, the situation comes to normal.
If the leaves not only spontaneously, but also twisted, become sluggish, then the reason may be a serious temperature difference and / or insufficient irrigation. When foliage is simply twisted, but does not black and does not weaken, the reason can be sought in the hubbits. When a white plaque appears on a bush, patients are better removed immediately. To cure them is impossible. But the risk of infecting other plants is great.
Gray rot attacks primarily foliage and did not have time to graze soft fabrics. Contributes to its appearance excess watering and unreasonable crowdness of plants. There is an infection in the formation of softened gray sections on the leaves. It is recommended that all sore places cut and burn. Highly affected bushes should be destroyed immediately.
With a weak development of gray rotches, it is suppressed by the burgundy mixture or the Fundazole preparation. Peronosporosis (he is white rot) treat, removing the affected areas. Then the sections are disinfected by manganese. Manganese, “Optima” and “Kuppex” help from protective preparations.
Sepitoriosis develops if the summer is raw and cool weather. Characterized by the spread of fungus from the base of the bush to the top. Spots have a diameter of 0.5 cm. Sliced places are disinfected not only by manganese, but also a garden boiler. Synthetic preparations helps “Profit”.
Usage in landscape design
Hydrangea “Vims Red” enjoys very popular among landscape designers. Culture is grown both in the format of spherical shrubs and in the format of the strain. Borrowed view is useful for creating live barriers. It looks great and as a solitator, and as part of a large composition. “Wims Red” can be used in combined mixlers; Good combinations are formed with:
- anemone autumn;
- decorative cereals;
Miscellaneous hydrangea gives equally beautiful flowers for quite a long time. In the southern regions of our country, it is not necessary to strengthen it. Judging by the statements of many gardeners, they simply cut off overly thin shoots. For shelter if it is really necessary, advised to apply Loutrasil. No difficulties in the cultivation of this cult does not occur; However, “Wims Red” is poorly compatible with near-locked plants.
