Hydrangea macrophylla DOLCE® France 'DOLFRANC'
A hortensia that privileges purple, from its foliage to the hems of the flowers
Descended from the variety 'Kiyosumi', DOLCE® France provides a striking spring-time foliage of brilliant purple that gathers green tints as the summer advances. The flowerheads form large blooms, both full and dense. The creamy white, pointed sepals are decorated with a purple border that tends to pink once the flower is fully open. The habit is rounded, well-branched with stout stems. Generously flowering, and able to flower on the year's new stems, l'Hydrangea macrophylla DOLCE® France provides an attractive second flowering and thus ensures a sustained and generous display.
