Hydrangea aspera 'Sam Macdonald'
Sorry, this product is sold out!
One of the best Hydrangea, just fabulously superb. It is a hybrid of the already much loved villosa with lacecaps of lilac-blue with typical hints of pink tinge. Like all aspera it has the softly hairy leaves. Will make a medium sized deciduous shrub. Hydrangeas require a lot of water to be vibrant, so do not plant them in dry sites, and new plants will need plenty of regular watering to get them growing.
We do not carry a lot stock, we propagate it ourselves and our plants go very fast. There are very few growers of this at the moment.
