Species & Cultivars

Hopcorn (H) (Hofstede, Wilhelmus Jacobus Gerardus) (Doormanstraat 6, Huissen, NL) 2006
Height & Width:

A hydrangea cultivar particularly distinguished by its bright pink inflorescences with cupped sepals, dark green leaves, and vigorous growth habit is disclosed.  The new cultivar originated from a naturally occurring branch mutation of the parent hydrangea cultivar `Mathilde Gutges` (unpatented) found in 1998 in Huissen, The Netherlands. The flowers of the mutant plant had smaller sepals and each sepal was cupped, unlike the normal flat sepals of the mutation parent plant.
