Peppermint Hydrangea

Description
Down the center of each petal, a brush stroke of color—pink in alkaline soil, blue in acidic soil—makes this hydrangea look particularly graceful. These mophead clusters grow nearly to 10" across. Peppermint Hydrangea blooms on old and new wood, so it's more reliable than the typical hydrangeas in northern climates. Even if a surprise spring frost takes some of the old–wood buds, new–wood buds create plenty of blooms to enjoy. Hydrangea macrophylla 'REI14' PP18476
