Hydrangea paniculata ‘Mega Mindy’
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.

Selected by plant breeder, Dr. Johan Van Huylenbroeck and named after a Flemish children's super hero, this fantastic recently introduced Hydrangea develops into a sturdy fast growing deciduous shrub with broad deep green veined leaves and strong compact branches that proudly uphold a marvelous action-packed floral display. Large conical heads, emerging pure white and gradually broadcasting rosy red shades in late summer, make exquisite additions to cut arrangements, fresh or dried, and assert long lasting loveliness, even to a frosty midwinter landscape.

Hardy, adaptable and easily pruned for smaller garden spaces, 'Mega Mindy' looks valiant as a coarsely textured specimen along a woodland's edge amid swaths of fine bladed grasses like Sesleria and Pennisetum. (pp#23,070)

Blooms early July–October.

Size: 5-1/2' high x 4-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 3.

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.
