Hydrangea Macrophylla 'Emile mouillère'
Classic hydrangea, which forms a bushy, well-branched plant. When it rains, the inflorescences, like all globose ones, become heavier and tend to bow down; but afterwards they straighten up very quickly. The sepals turn vermilion in the autumn, but tend to become brownish if they undergo a prolonged drought or are exposed to direct and very intense sunlight. This is one of the first cultivars, and is still in production: time is witness to its excellent quality. It is vigorous, withstands cold and even tolerates full sunshine; it is easy to reproduce, suitable for forcing, and can be cultivated very well also in pots.
