Hydrangea aspera 'Hot Chocolate'
Posted on August 14, 2015 by David Fairley | 0 comments
We are now selling Hydrangea aspera 'Hot Chocolate.' It is a fantastic summer flowering, medium sized shrub with dark brown leaves and large pink flowers. Chocolate brown lanceolate leaves that also have a a burgundy under side too that have a fuzzy texture. It's name aspear means Velvet from the Dutch translation, need you know more? The flower heads are slightly unusual for a Hydrangea, and contrast wondefully against the brown leeaves. In the Autumn the leaves fade to ochre-yellow colour with a hint of orange, importantly aspers 'Hot Chocolate' must be planted in shade or only light sun as it will not thrive in full sunshine.
