Hydrangea strigosa ’Golden Needle’ - 2 quart
Hydrangea strigosa ’Golden Needle’ - 2 quart A remarkable Hydrangea strigosa because ’Golden Needle’ is close to a mophead in its bloom making it totally distinct from all other hydrangeas in this species that we know. It was found by Ozzie Johnson and plant-hunting compatriots and shared with us by Scott McMahan after a plant collecting trip they took in Sechuan, China along with Dan Hinkley et.al. The name ’Golden Needle’ does not describe the color or shape of the bloom. It’s the name of the karst on which they collected it (see Ozzie’s photograph). It’s easy of culture wanting some shade and good drainage and lots of space like all asperas. Gosh it’s beautiful if you have the room. For sure you won’t find it at any nursery near you. But it’s not just that it is a collector plant. It is strikingly beautiful and will entice any true gardener who has the room. We agree with Mark Weathington, Director of the Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh, NC who says: "Life is too short for boring plants." Have fun, it’s your life and your garden - one chance this go ’round’. Photos are of both the fresh bloom and as it ages (greeny). The correct taxonomy according to Ozzie is Hydrangea aspera subsp. strigosa ’Golden Needle’. Height to 8 feet, possibly more. Zones (7)8 - 9.

Spinners Lacecap - 3 quart
This is a selected form by Spinners Nursery near Lymington, Hampshire, England of Hydrangea aspera that blooms later than the species but before another form we also grow, ’Kawakamii.’ The flower is typical of the species, being a mauve to lavender lacecap held above large, felty leaves. Like all H. asperas, give it lots of room to become the large plant wants to be. If you have the garden space a truly handsome plant. Needs good drainage. Easily 6’ by 6’. Zones 7 - 9.
