(Rough-leaved Hydrangea) A handsome small to medium sized, deciduous shrub with large, soft chocolate burgundy coloured leaves and violet-blue lacecap-like flowers in mid to late summer.

A superb plant for dappled or partial shade with a little shelter from strong winds. Grows very well in a large container.

These plants were pruned hard in early autumn to promote a good branching habit when they start to grow in Spring.
