Hydrangea 'Lanarth' OUTSTANDING NEW SHRUB. This Perennial shrub has been container grown so can be planted at any time of the year. We despatch WITH container so the roots are safe.
'Lanarth White' is a small deciduous shrub with broadly ovate leaves. Flattened lace-cap flower heads with pink or blue central sterile florets surrounded by white ray-florets. Isn’t it funny how fashions often go around in a full circle? For a time Hydrangeas were considered a bit fuddy duddy, then a busy generation of gardeners realised these summer flowering shrubs could make their lives easier with their easy care nature and full on flowering performances. So Hydrangeas, after being rather overlooked for a generation, have made a reappearance in our gardens, their new found popularity helped along by some exciting, new, compact growing varieties.
One of these smart new Hydrangeas is the variety 'Lanarth’, which is smothered in flattened lace-cap flower heads with pink or blue central sterile florets surrounded by white ray-florets in summer. The flowers often continue into the autumn months, which lifts their appeal considerably. Sometimes, when the soil is quite acid, the flowers of ‘Masja’ will turn to a blue colour. This can be corrected for the following season by applying a dressing of lime in winter. A little gardening magic. Or if you prefer the blue colour, which is attractive too, you can simply let things be.
