Hydrangea paniculata Polestar is especially highly prized as the first of the paniculata varieties to come into flower (early June), only beginning to die back in October. Chameleon-like, the flowers emerge as a fresh lime green, then mature into a rich cream, before flushing a salmon pink and finally becoming wine red. Even when the plant is dying down, the seed heads are eye-catching, adding three-dimensional lacy detail to the winter garden or, if cut, to a sculptural flower arrangement.

Not only beautiful and long-lasting, H. paniculate Polestar is valued for its compact form. Growing no bigger than 50cm, it is a perfect candidate for the border of a cottage or terrace garden, or as an ever-changing specimen planted in a container.
