Latin Name: Hydrangea Macrophylla 'bailmer'
Description: Has the unique ability to flower on new AND old wood consistently, therefore producing large 10 - 15 cm blooms all Summer. Good cut flowers. Deadheading will encourage the production of more flowes. Flower colour depends on the acidity of the soil. Acidic soil will encourage blue blooms, while alkaline soil will produce pink ones. Mid-range soils will produce flowers that are stuck in between, turning greenish-mauve or off-white in colour.
