Description

A fabulous, exciting and new hydrangea with a lot going for it. Its lace-cap flowers cover a spectrum of colour from pale and dusky pink through to deep blue-mauve, and they glow beautifully with a blue haze at dusk.

The flower colour is consistent on any soil – they're not pH dependent. Its large, pointed, felted leaves have a chocolate-brown reverse, providing interest before flowering. Hydrangea Aspera will perform well in a north-facing or shaded spot and on any soil.

Care Tips

Provide shelter from cold winds. This needs very little pruning and in most cases are best left to their own devices. These plants flower on previous or current year's growth.
