This award-winning shrub is a showy addition to the garden. The fully double white blooms are liberally frosted with a soft rosy-pink edging. With a medium to fast growth rate and long flowering period that begins in June and lasts through fall, it makes an outstanding focal point or border planting. Large mophead-type flower clusters look fantastic in a cut-flower arrangement or bouquet, too. Prefers a partially shaded area with well-drained, moisture-retentive soil. Prune after flowering in late fall to maintain plant size. Lures beneficial pollinators to the garden. Unlike many hydrangeas, this variety will remain the same color, regardless of soil type.
