I love this hydrangea with soft purple flowers washed with green when they first open.

It's hugely long-flowering and magnificent for months. It's marvellous for picking for a huge autumn vase.

Care Tips This shrub does best in partial shade. It requires an evenly moist soil for optimal growth. Acidic soil will ensure lavender / mauve blooms. Apply a thick mulch around the base in both summer and winter to conserve soil moisture and protect it in colder climates. It is also well-suited for use in outdoor containers.
Flowering June - November
Vase Life Float the flowers on the water in a bath overnight to maximise vase life. To dry, hang them upside down for a couple of weeks.

Bought last September and planted out in the spring in a container. It's really healthy , puts lots of growth on and now has the most amazing dark lilac flowers.

Had admired this plant after seeing it in a friends garden. Lovely soft pink creamy blooms. Planted in a large pot until I decide on its final home.
