Japanese Mountain Hydrangea

Hydrangea serrata Miranda

July–September.



<i>Hydrangea serrata</i> ‘Miranda’

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.

With unmatched delicacy, these exquisite inflorescences are defined by loosely spaced sepals wreathing around several separate, distinctive clusters of light blue, centrally arranged fertile flowers. The lacy, long lasting drama unfolds in varying shades from soft blue and mauve to nearly white to pale pink, sometimes donning streaks and swathes of different colors, depending upon the pH. Yellow-tinged green foliage attires this small-sized Hydrangea, and come autumn tints of claret warm the margins, veins and eventually the entire leaf.

A seedling selected by M. Haworth-Booth, ‘Miranda’s diminutive profile can be spotlighted in a patio vessel or anywhere its elegance is easily appreciated.

Size: 3-1/2'–4' 0" high x 3-1/2'–4' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.
