Hydrangea 'Confetti' Overview

This new Hydrangea cultivar introudction - 'Confetti' has a compact habit yet still produces light and open flowerheads for a prolonged time over the summer. The fragrant flowers opening from green buds appear pure white and develop a pink flush as they mature. The faded flower heads not only provide structural interest over winter, but they also provide frost protection to next years developing buds. Happy in pots, they will grow well in partially shaded sites, although many more flowers will be produced when situated in sunny spots. Preferring moist soil, this deciduous shrub will appreciate regular watering, especially if grown in a tub. Mulch in spring with a good thick layer of garden compost or animal manure - well-rotted, to increase the soils ability to hold hold water. Hydrangea 'Confetti' is the preferred selling name of Hydrangea paniculata 'Vlasveld 02', protected under intellectual property laws by Plant Breeders' Rights. These provide the breeder of new plants exclusive control over the plant material for a set amount of time.
