An outstanding cultivar with large flowers which start pale green before turning white and then red.  Well branched, medium sized shrub. The flowers carry only sterile ray-flowers and the flower heads (panicles) are almost as big as those of ‘Grandiflora’ but age to a darker pinker colour.

It originated from a cross by the inventor of two unidentified selections of Hydrangea paniculata.
