Sometimes you think you know something so well that it can't really turn your head anymore. Hydrangeas are almost so frequently planted in our landscapes that they almost fade into the background. Similar forms, so so colors, same leaves. But wait! Have you met Miss Saori Hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla 'H20-2')?
The incredible flowers of Miss Saori are fully double white blooms with picotee frosting of soft rose along the edges! How's that for something beyond the humdrum? The whole effect is a frothy, delicate confection of a mophead flower. Miss Saori is catch-your-breath beautiful, both in the garden and in the vase! Plus it will be constantly visited by pollinators! Supported by strong stems and backed by textured green leaves with delightful toothy edges, these are mid-sized shrubs that reach a rounded form 3-4 feet in height and width.
It is from a new breed of Hydrangeas that remain the same color no matter your soil type - so no more worrying about alkalinity and whether you are getting pink or blue flowers this year. You will always see Miss Saori at her stunning best! This original variety of Bigleaf Hydrangea was first introduced at the world-renowned Chelsea Flower in 2014 where she promptly went on the win the coveted Chelsea Flower Show 'Plant of the Year'! Bred by one of the most highly respected Hydrangea breeders in the world, this shrub is totally unique and ready to be yours!
The beautiful foliage complements the blooms - burgundy in spring, deep green in summer and plum in autumn. You will love this shrub all season long! The blooms look fantastic in a large planter or snipped for a vase and bouquet. Dry the big mophead blooms on the plant for winter interest or for interior décor. The bold color is an obvious specimen accent and focal point that's pretty enough for front yard landscaping!
Plant as low rows for property dividing hedges and screening, these big flouncy friendly fences are one neither you or your neighbors will mind looking at. Small enough for container gardening use and around seating areas for pinpoint privacy, dotting throughout a perennial or mixed-shrub border and as a great backdrop for smaller plants!
Bigleaf Hydrangea loves the full sun for the strongest stems and biggest blooms. They also prefer partial shade in the hotter of the USDA growing zones 5-9, with afternoon shade and morning sun their favorite! Plant in very well-drained moist soil and top off with a 3-4 inch thick layer of mulch for insulation and moisture retention. Prune Bigleaf varieties only after flowering, or in the colder zones, early spring to remove any winter-damaged tips, as it blooms on last year's wood.
