Hydrangea aspera

Hydrangea aspera
This Hydrangea is a spreading tall (3 metre) shrub from the Himalayas which is seldom grown or promoted in comparison to the H macrophylla type (as per photo below). This is a pity because it flowers well into autumn with so many flower heads the branches are weighed down by them. It makes a good understory shrub in a woodland type garden or in combination with autumn flowering perennials such as Anenome japonica which is just starting to bud as per photo above.
2017 update: I no longer grow this for sale.
