(Hydrangeaceae)

Cardiandra × agricola 'Crûg’s Pink'

Pot Size: 1 litre
Price: £20.00
Description:
A long awaited hybrid from one of our crosses, that we made between a flamboyant Taiwanese species and a very hardy Japanese alpine forest species. A cross between two most unusual perennials, which are fundamentally herbaceous hydrangea look-alikes, originating from mountain forests. Affording the best of the hardiness of one species and the superior ornamental value of the other. With soft narrow serrated leaves held on branching upwardly inclined stems to around 1 m tall. With larger than normal sterile pinkish florets subtending the pink fertile flowers on reddish stalks. Best grown in a coolish shady site in a leafy acidic to neutral soil, protect from strong winds and the severest cold. Flowering from August until Christmas for us, if frost free.
