Description

Rivalling a lace-cap hydrangea in its elegance and easy habit, plates of delicate creamy flowers become ruby red berry sprays in autumn. Long season of interest and autumnal leaf colour a bonus.

Provenance

Initially purchased from Weasdale Nursery, but later propagated from cuttings on site.

Cultivation

Unfussy about soil or aspect

Maintenance

Can be trimmed in hedges, but at the cost of flowers and fruit.
