(syn. Blue Wave)
A nice variety of Hydrangea and this one is a lace cap, named for their large, flat flower heads. Mariesii or Blue Wave is a pink or blue variety and the colour is dependent on the acidity of the soil, the lower p.h. (more acid) the bluer it will be.
Growth begins quickly at the beginning of the seasons and the plant puts on plenty of luscious bright green leaves, the flowers are then produced through summer.
The flower heads can be left over winter to add interest or trimmed back to tidy up the shrub.
