Species - seratta

This species is native of Japan and as much of both collecting from the wild and breeding of new cultivars has been carried out in Japan most have Japanese names.  They are mostley smaller and more delicately structured that H.macrophylla lacecaps.  Their leaves are smaller and thinner and often colour reddish in the autumn.  The flowers heads are also smaller and more delicate, however this does not distract from their beauty as there are plenty of stunningly beautiful cultivars now available.
