The exquisite 12" flower balls on this shrub blend beautifully with the golds and darker hues of late summer. Soft lime green petals mature eventually to a deep rich pink, contrasting wonderfully on the same plant. Immense flowers dry well for bouquets and hold up well as cut flowers. Proven Winners® selections are trialed and tested to be colorful, long blooming, carefree and easy to grow.

A native of Asia-the most cold hardy. Stiff upright branches never get floppy. Will need several hours of sun to do well. The flowers are more cone shaped then ball-like and age to pleasing pink tones. Can also be shaped into tree form.

Hydrangea General Information

Hydrangea are superb in the border for summer and autumn color. This shade-tolerant shrub is perfect for under trees and in the shadows of buildings. Provides winter interest too if flowers are left on. Great for indoor decorating as their flowers are easily dried.

Hydrangea Plant Care

Previous year's wood can be pruned back to leave only two buds at the base of each stem in very early spring to encourage larger panicles.
