General description

A stunning new variety of hydrangea, selected after years of trials by French breeders! Satin white hydrangea flowers emerge in elegant cones, gradually turning a mouth watering shade of strawberry as they mature. Easy to grow and extremely hardy, this delectable shrub is perfect for those tricky north facing positions. Height and spread: 2m (6ft).

Plant requirements

Grow Hydrangeas in a sunny or partially shaded spot with shelter from cold, drying winds. Originating from woodland areas, Hydrangeas are perfect for cool, dappled shade or woodland gardens.


All Hydrangeas prefer a reliably moist, fertile soil. Prior to planting, incorporate generous amounts of organic matter into the soil to provide the best growing conditions. Mulch Hydrangea plants each spring with a layer of well-rotted manure or compost to help conserve moisture in the soil. On light, sandy soils scatter a slow-release fertilizer around the base of the plant each spring.
