This astonishing variety, Hydrangea Runaway Bride, is described as a garland hydrangea, producing up to six times more flowers than most other cultivars. On each pair of leaves it carries up to six large lace cap flowerheads, creating a garland effect which explains its name. The white blooms are blushed with just a hint of pink, creating a romantic display over a long season, from early summer to autumn.
