In this plant combination, a trio of choice plants create a silvery-blue tapestry of gorgeous foliage that forms a three-season frame for the blooming centerpiece of this vignette, the ever-evolving Hydrangea serrata 'Preziosa'. Preziosa has a wonderful seasonal flow—burgundy-infused foliage provides an effective back drop for mop head flowers that start ivory, age to pink, and become increasingly color saturated; becoming red to maroon through the summer and into fall.
Best for part shade, protected from direct afternoon sun—this vignette will provides months of easy-care garden enjoyment. There's even a planting plan to help you get the quantity and spacing right for an ell-shaped garden bed.
