Description

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.

Sowing Advice

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.
