This pH sensitive hydrangea is a rare beauty as it blooms early and lasts well into fall. It is truly unique with its very frilly petals and smooth medium green leaves. Delicate pink in neutral soil and vivid blue-violet in high acid environments. This mophead hydrangea thinks it�s a lacecap as the petals flip upside down late in the season. Afternoon shade is needed for this variety. Don't miss this difficult to find variety. Sport of Madame Emile Mouillere found in 1950s by M. Haworth Booth.
