Hydrangea macrophylla 'Hanabi'
Marvellous shrub, whose name means ‘fireworks’. It is a very vigorous plant, develops considerably and is generous in the quantity of its flowers. The name it has been given is a faithful representation of the shape and beauty of its inflorescences, which are pure white. The fertile flowers, at the centre of the lacecap inflorescence, are a delicate pale pink when they open. The sterile flowers are white and consist of several layers of sepals; they are carried by long peduncles that are faintly tinged with pink in the part nearest the flower. The individual sepals are elongated and narrow at the apex. As the flowers age, they may acquire mauve or pink tones. The overall effect is both dazzling and elegant. A shady spot with plenty of light is recommended.
