Edgy® Hearts Hydrangea
Variegated, Heart-shaped Petals!
There's never been a Hydrangea like Edgy® Hearts! It's a whole new look for this charming shrub, and one to be treasured in the border, foundation, container, and vase!
Each petal on these big, full, rounded flowerheads is folded lengthwise, creating a heart-shaped look. This would be remarkable enough, but each is also edged in white! Whether your alkaline soil turns the petal interiors pink or your acidic mix shades them blue, the edges will be a neat, trim white! (And the pink or blue will turn to a nice shade of lime-green with maturity, by the way!) Simply stunning.
Edgy® Hearts is a compact shrub, just 3 to 5 feet high and wide in the garden and usually a bit smaller in containers. The blooms are full-size, however (about 8 to 10 inches in diameter), so they look huge among the glossy, bright green foliage. They're great for cutting -- be sure to dry some as everlastings, either with their fresh pink/blue color or after they fade to green. And they make lovely fresh cuts as well.
This Big Leaf Hydrangea comes to us from Dresden, Germany. Compact container Hydrangeas are all the rage in Europe, and we think Edgy® Hearts takes the shrub to a whole new level. Give it a try, and we think you'll agree! Zones 5-9.
