This first ever purple leaved Hydrangea for American Gardens was discovered in China and brought to us by Dan Hinkley. A unique shrub with greenish purple new foliage, the leaves aging to deep purple with rosy purple undersides. Wispy flowers nicely contrast with the dramatic, colorful foliage. Excellent fall color. Deciduous.
