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.
