Mega Rounded Flower Clusters
Hydrangea Mega Pearl (Hydrangea paniculata 'Mega Pearl') is a beauty among hydrangeas. This large shrub (which performs great in both sun and shade) is covered on new wood by huge elongated flower panicles. Unlike the tight balls of flowers you might be familiar with on garden hydrangeas, these are open, airy cones of florets that start white, and then turn a light pink towards the end of the season.
Mega Pearl’s individual flowers are larger than other hydrangeas and really stand out against the deep green leaves. The flowers are great to use as fresh cuts for flower arrangements, but are truly excellent when they are dried for arranging later in the winter.
Since Mega Pearl does so well in sun or shade and average garden soil, you certainly have a place in your garden for this beauty. Extremely vigorous, she shows off in perennial beds, borders and containers (especially containers!).
Tolerate of both wind and salt, Mega Pearl makes an ideal (and classic) choice for a seaside summer cottage – or the house you wish was by the sea.
