Hydrangea serrata Beni Gaku
Hydrangea serrata Beni Gaku. A beautiful deciduous shrub laden with large flat White and Blue or White and Pink flowers. Which can be near white, pale blue or pale pink depending on the soil pH. The large sterile flowers swirl around small clusters of tiny fertile double flowers of a much deeper colour in the centre of the flower. This creates a beautiful domed shape display of flowers standing out against the deep dark green leaves. Flowers age to a rich red wine colour late in the season. And can be cut and dried at this stage. Beni Gaku is a stunning plant. And more compact growing approx 1.5m x 1.5m. It can tolerate a lot of sun for a hydrangea. But prefers part shade with damp humus rich soils. A stunner for any garden.
We fertilise regularly with Earthlife Flower Blend through the growing and flowering season to ensure an abundant supply of flowers.
