    Winner of RHS Chelsea plant of the year 2014, this stunning new hydrangea can flower on both new and old wood, so it has a very long period of interest. The petals of the sterile, double flowers have a deep rose margin, creating a picotee effect with the creamy white centre. They look dazzling against the backdrop of lush green foliage, which takes on burgundy overtones in spring and autumn.

  • Garden care: Leave the old flower heads in place through the winter. As the new shoots start to emerge in spring cut back a third to a quarter of the previous seasons flowering stems to the base and cut back the remaining flower heads to the first pair of buds.
