Hydrangea 'Confetti' Overview

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.
