Hydrangea aspera ssp. robusta - GWJ9430

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
Finally we have the true and distinct plants, of this subspecies that has long been confused in cultivation. Our collection from the centre of its distribution in the Darjeeling area of the Himalayas, where it is commonly seen forming sizeable shrubs with age, clothed in the typical large (30-40 cm) paddle-shaped softly hairy leaves on distinctly long red petioles, only starting to open the substantial inflorescences of pale purple-blue flowers in October, but lasting into December (a trait that the impostors cannot perform). Best grown with some shelter from strong winds in a moisture retentive, but drained soil in sun to light shade.
