Bed U: Plant 39
Hydrangea aspera Hot Chocolate is a new variety with large large lacecap flowers. Around the edge of each flower heads are attractive pink blossoms, and in the heart blue flowers. These are all held at the end of sturdy brown red twigs. What’s more, the underside of the leaf is striking burgundy, whilst the top is chocolate brown, fading to deep green later in the season.
