Hydrangea serrata 'Miyame-yae-Murasake'

Mountain Hydrangea

Plant Type:


Hydrangea serrata 'Miyame-yae-Murasaki' - ​CLOSEOUT. Great price... fill some of those empty spots. This beautiful Japanese cultivar displays blue-pink to violet double sterile flowers in a ring around the central fertile florets. Wine infuses each long lasting lace cap becoming increasingly burnished by late season. Flowers are more open and airy and somewhat smaller in diameter than your typical lace cap and afford a relaxed, casual air. Clean, green leaves are in opposite formation on red petioles. Nice! Foliage may pick up autumn tones in some years. Fertile soil in part to mostly sunny siting. Established potted Mountain Hydrangea, cutting grown.

Genus Overview: Hydrangea serrata

This species originates in the mountains of Japan and Korea. Though it is purportedly hardier than H. macrophylla we seldom see flowers in USDA zone 5b; as such we are listing all of the following cultivars as better doers in zones 6 to 9. The ovate to lanceolate foliage tends to be narrower than its close cousin, H. macrophylla. The smaller leaves support an over all more delicate appearance. And as with H. macrophylla there are also both lace caps and mop heads occurring in this species and will be noted below. We've seen this group also listed as H. macrophylla var. serrata. All prefer fertile soil to sandy loam. All of the following cultivars are cutting grown.
