Main asset

Original bicolour variety, offering a contrast of forms and colors on the same inflorescences.


The central fertile flowers color is dependent on the pH and the composition of the soil. The more the soil is acidic and in the presence of aluminum (sulphate of alumina, shale), the more the flowers will be purple to bluish.

Hydrangea of medium development, found in 1949 in a garden in Lanarth (UK). Flat (lacecap) inflorescences consisting of pure white sterile flowers, peripheral and punctually among the fertile flowers, and central small fertile flowers blue to pink depending on the soil, appearing on the wood of the previous year.
