This truly rare and unique plant is a slow-growing species of Hydrangea, native to parts of Japan. It bears fascinating, nettle-like leaves with a serrated edge, and bears flat clusters of attractive pale mauve flowers. It makes a truly most handsome shrub, and although hardy, is best planted in a position with shelter from cold winds, ideally in sun or light dappled shade. Very few good, fertile tiny seeds collected.
These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. They should be sown into well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered to their own depth with sand or grit. No artificial heat is needed; the seed tray is best left in a cool spot outside and kept moist. Seeds germinate very slowly indeed in the spring after a chilling in the cold compost, regardless of when they are sown. Some seeds may take more than a year to germinate.
