Plant details

Most hydrangeas grown in British gardens have glossy dark green leaves and large flower-heads. This hydrangea, however, has dull green leaves with bristly hairs on top and a grey down underneath. Its huge flowers appear from late summer to mid-autumn. The inner flowers on the head are small and blue to deep purple, whereas the outer petals are larger and white, occasionally flushed with deep pink. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
