Sounds like Hydrangea macrophylla Lady In Red; see the link below.

Here is a link that might be useful: Hydrangea LIR

Could be Endless Summer Twist 'n Shout as well, which is very red-tinged (it's a hybrid of LIR and Penny Mac)...

Oh, yes. I remember that one now. It is a sport of Merrit Supreme, no? How do you like it, Al?

Very interesting observation. All three are advertised as up to 5' (height and width) but ts and lir were actually described as between 3' and 5' wide and tall!

What size have they gotten to in your garden?

Oregon Pride was purchased from Joy Creek, an Oregon nursery. Of the three Hydrangea from Joy Creek, this is the strongest grower. It is in a 14 inch container of gritty mix in its second year. I plan on planting it in the garden in the fall. AL
