I bought this variety 3 years ago because of its beautiful pink blooms. I’ve never seen a beautiful hydrangea blooms. Sadly, that’s the only time I saw the plant with flowers. Three years later still no flowers, so I’m going to replace it with the PW reblooming hydrangeas. I’m hoping they are better performers.

Dwarf Cityline hydrangeas stay tight and compact without any pruning, making them a great choice for container gardens and foundation plantings. The clear pink flowers of Berlin are the largest blooms in the series. Easter-egg-colored blooms are long-lasting, changing to an attractive green with age. The glossy green leaves have a very high level of mildew resistance.Cityline® Berlin Hydrangea macrophylla 'Berlin Rabe' USPP 10,912
