Species & Cultivars

Merrits White * (H) (Higaki; Harrison Masami, San Mateo, CA) 2011
Height & Width:

A new and distinct cultivar of Hydrangea macrophylla (Thunb.) named `Merritt White` was found in a field of the patented cultivar `Ravel`.  It has white sepals at maturity and is distinguished from other similar cultivars of which the inventor is aware by the unique manner in which the inflorescence ages. As the mature sepals age and turn green they are highly resistant to burning and turning brown. The new variety further possesses the favourable characteristics of a compact growth habit and long lasting large inflorescences.
