12 sep Hydrangea arborescens Candybelle® Marshmallow – the gold medalist from Moscow
Hydrangea arborescens Candybelle® Marshmallow has been recognized as one of the most interesting new plants that appeared on the market this year.
Marshmallow, like other varieties of Hydrangea arborescens, is hardy and easy to grow. A strong spring cut and regular watering are enough to enjoy large, light pink (salmon) flowers every year. The plant maintains a compact habit, shoots are stiff and do not “lay” even when they are loaded with heavy inflorescences.
Due to the fact that Marshmallow grows only to about 1 m in height and similar width, it is perfect for large containers. The delicate, subtle color of Marshmallow flowers wonderfully emphasizes the romantic nature of the place where it grows.
