Project Description

Seaside Serenade® Cape Hatteras Hydrangea

Hydrangea macrophylla ‘HORTHAT’ PPAF

Introduced by Monrovia
Hybridized by Kolster BV, The Netherlands

The deep burgundy red of this bloom is hard to believe, and photos don’t seem to do it justice. The blooms are offset with fantastic deep-green foliage and the stems are very strong to hold up the 10-inch blooms. As a tetraploid, this plant is stronger and tougher with thick stems and strong, deeply colored, leathery foliage and long-lasting blooms. Flowers in spring and summer, with an ultimate
size of 3½ feet tall and 3 feet wide. Makes a statement in the garden or as an entryway accent in a container. The blooms hold their color for an extended period of time and make excellent dried flowers. The compact habit without the use of PGR fits usefully into a variety of smaller spaces in the landscape.

Available as #2 and #5 containers from Monrovia (Booth 17037)
