The panicles of FRAISE MELBA® are tapered but thick and without fertile flowers. At first white, end of July - beginning of August, they then turn red progressively from the bottom to the top. The contrast of the 2 colours reminds us of SRAWBERRY MELBA; very decorative, the red and white duo is longlasting. The flowerheads turn and stay completely dark pink, until the beginning of autumn. These colour shades can vary according to location, climate and type of soil.
Upright and very attractive in summer, the shrub is ideal to be sold in summer.
The different varieties of the Hydrangea paniculata range, supplied by SAPHO, go well in a shrub beorder together with perennials or in a pot.
For a full development of the colours of the panicles, avoid watering directly onto the leaves and flowers.
Cut back hard at the end of winter.
