This astonishing variety produces up to six times more flowers than most other cultivars. Instead of just one bloom per branch, the Runaway Bride has on each pair of leaves up to six large and truly stunning lace cap flowerheads! This type of hydrangea is called Garland, as the branches are like living garlands.
The white blooms are blushed with just a hint of pink, creating a truly romantic display over a long season, from early summer to autumn.
This award-winning, fully hardy perennial shrub has a dense, rounded habit that makes it perfect for a patio container. Alternatively, plant it as a specimen or in a lightly shaded border, where it will add plenty of elegance to your planting scheme. It is also good for cutting and in dried arrangements.
