Design IdeasFeature in mixed borders, where its profusion of large, 6 1/2 inch flower clusters will delight the passerby. This Hydrangea's brilliant mahogany highlights in fall are ideal for extending the interest in shrub borders beyond the flowering season. Also lends a fiery hue to otherwise deep-green shade gardens. Plant as an individual to appreciate the unique foliage texture and leaf shape, or in groups to intensify its impact in the garden. More compact than the traditional Hydrangea, it is a natural in the woodland scene and among rangy natives.
