A superb form of this variable species obtained from the former Quarryhill Botanic Gardens. Green elliptical leaves pair nicely with the large flattened corymbs of white fertile flowers which are sporadically fringed in over-sized pure white sterile florets. This owns a spot in perpetuity on our personal list of faves.
Species recently introduced from Vietnam and hardiness not known but warmer zone 8 and above is safe. Well worth taking a chance on as the lacecap flowers have that little sumpin' sumpin' that made this the staff favorite here. White sterile flowers surround fertile florets of pink to indigo depending on pH and clonal differences.
From the southern portion of its range, this collection has performed wildly beyond expectations given the low bar set from the dormant plants in the wild where they were 8'-10' tall in full exposure. We seldom name plants but this selection is worthy with profuse bee-laden white flowers from top to bottom.
An outstanding selection from Mt Kiyosumi in Japan, this is distinguished by russet and burgundy tones to the new foliage and the lacecap flowers are the perfect complement to that foliage with the sterile florets being white in the center of the flower and bushing to a distinct pink rim.
This gets more than its share of attention in our shade garden causing people to completely ignore the poor Gaultheria x wisleyensis on the other side of the path. Gold washed, flecked and stippled foliage with light pink lacecap flowers. An excellent Japanese selection.
A United States National Arboretum introduction of this intergeneric hybrid between Hydrangea and Dichroa. With recent molecular work lumping Dichroa in with Hydrangea, this makes sense that these would hybridize. Fine, dense heads of lavender-blue flowers on a small shrub. The USNA also holds Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy plants in their collection.
