Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Lanarth White’
at Digging Dog

Hydrangea

The name Hydrangea, means “water vessel,” given for its cup-shaped seed vessels. A genus of diverse forms, Hydrangeas are commonly found throughout Asia, from the Himalayas to Taiwan and Japan, with the exception of two species, Hydrangea arborescens and Hydrangea quercifolia, which are native to North America.

Easily grown, this shrub’s lush deciduous leaves are best suited to loose, moist soil in the shade of tall trees or on the north side of the house. If, like us, you’ve tired of the commoner sort, these delicacies will be a welcome surprise.

Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Lanarth White’ full sun  partial shade

While this enticing AGM winner was discovered in Lanarth, Cornwall and similar-looking white lacecaps can be found growing in Japan, its precise origin still remains somewhat of a mystery. Poised above finely serrated broad pale green leaves and unspeckled green stems, irregularly spaced white-as-snow florets perform a lacy dance around medium blue or lilac-colored fertile flowers. Full sun exposures (when accompanied by even moisture), sea side abodes and poor soil seldom impede its shapely habit from displaying a wealth of elegant blooms, which make superb porcelain-hued additions to dried arrangements.

Size: 3' 0"–5' 0" high x 3' 0"–5' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.
