This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.


  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained, moderately fertile, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Flower colour: white
  • Other features: contact with the foliage may aggravate skin allergies; the flower-heads make excellent dried flower arrangements
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Conical clusters of white flowers appear from midsummer to autumn, fading to pink as they mature. This deciduous hydrangea makes a wonderful specimen plant for a partly shady border with moist, well-drained soil. Later-flowering than other varieties, the interesting, oak-shaped leaves turn shades of bronze-purple in autumn.

  • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. Where necessary remove misplaced or diseased shoots in spring
