Plant Patent #10,928. Cultivar name: 'Venice Raven.'

The natural dwarf habit of this lovely Bigleaf Hydrangea from Germany is compact and dense, with far more flowering stems than most others. Small enough for containers or any tight spot, Cityline® Venice is an attention-getter with giant fuchsia blooms and fresh, attractive green foliage. It belongs front and center in the shrub border, patio garden, or your best container!

Just 1 to 3 feet high and wide, this shrub offers large, neatly serrated leaves of fresh spring green that keep their clean look from spring till frost. They form an excellent foil for the very large blooms to follow. These flowers open pale pink, then darken to a rich, hard-to-find shade of bright fuschia. Very showy for cutflowers, and simply covering the plant if left in place.

Cityline® Venice appreciates protection from harsh afternoon sun, and if you plant it beneath deciduous trees, check the first year to make sure it isn't getting too much sunlight during the winter months. It begins blooming in early summer and continues until autumn, for a huge show of color in a very small space. Zones 5-9.
