Hydrangea paniculata MOJITO
A low shrub growing up to 1 m high and about 1.2 m wide. Straight stems. Dark green, ovate leaves, roughly hairy on both sides. Sterile flowers gathered in cone-shaped inflorescences on the tops of shoots. Inflorescences grow up to 25 cm long, initially white-green (lime), then turn slightly pink. Flowering begins in July and lasts until September. After blossoming, the flowers dry up and remain an ornament of the shrub through the autumn and winter.
The plant is recommended for cultivation on moderately fertile, moist and permeable, slightly acidic soils, in sunny or semi-shady locations. Fully resistant to frost (zone 5), healthy.
Recommended for planting in groups in home gardens and estate greenery and for growing in containers. Cut flowers are perfect for bouquets and drying.
