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.

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