  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A recently introduced cultivar of Hydrangea paniculata, which is currently making a big splash 'on the scene'. It is unique because it has a compact habit, and almost rounded flowerheads, which appear prolifically for a long period from mid summer. It also tends to form a more branching shrub, than many of the other varieties currently available. A wonderful new plant, its creamy-white flowers often emerge with a pale pink eye, and this becomes more pronounced as the flowers mature during the summer. The flower-heads are excellent in dried arrangements.

  • Garden care: To enhance flowering prune hard in early spring, cut back the previous season's shoots to within a few buds of the permanent, woody framework of the plant.
