Hydrangea serrata ‘Kiyosumi’
at Digging Dog

Japanese Mountain Hydrangea

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.

Straight from the slopes of Japan's Mt. Kiyosumi comes this spectacular deciduous Hydrangea acclaimed for its artful pink lacecaps and lavish burgundy and henna flushed new growth. Springing from ruby red buds and narrowly rimmed in red, the rosy picotee sterile florets, which eventually fade to white, festoon a compact rounded bushy assemblage of purple spotted stems plus broad mature dark green foliage, highlighted by prominent veins and young sanguine-colored leaves. Easily grown and medium-sized, 'Kiyosumi' bestows dazzling accents on any shady spot, especially when planted behind Parahebe linifolia.

Blooms July–September.

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

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

Customer Comment:

“I just visited Digging Dog Nursery over the weekend, and was very impressed, both by their plants and their beautifully landscaped surroundings. They have a wide range of plants (many which you don't see elsewhere) and everything was healthy, vigorous and picture perfect. The word which comes to mind is "cherished." I bought a few of these beauties and they are blooming already!”
