I brought this shrub in May and it is a great shrub. I have it in all day sun and when I planted it, I cut off all of the flowers so it could concentrate on getting established, especially during the drought we had in June and part of July with high temperatures. We are now getting consistent rainfall and it is now starting to bloom. I love how petite the flower buds are and the deep green of the leaves. As it just started blooming it has not started the color change yet but if it is anything like Quickfire I am sure it will be really pretty. It is a perfect size to put in front of the border. Next summer I plan on planting supertunia mini vistas in front of it.

I’ve just had this plant for about 2 weeks and I’m already in love with it! Foliage is a distinct, deep and dark green. Leaves are puckered and unlock any other hydrangea I’ve seen. Also, leaf nodes are very close to each other so leaves looked stacked up on each branch. It’s a very unique hydrangea. I haven’t seen any blooms yet but anticipate a good show next year.Gilbert Diaz, Texas, United States, 49 weeks ago
