hydrangea fireworks

This is Hydrangea ‘Fireworks’, a lacecap variety of Hydrangea macrophylla raised in Japan where it is named ‘Hanabi’. It might well seem a bit “pretty” for some, but, now on its third flowering with me, I’m very pleased with the way it looks. The flowers are quite a bright cold white, the coldness perhaps coming from their faint blue veins and streaks, and that means the whole shrub shows up well in a shady spot, here with softer toned plants around it.
