Miss Saori Hydrangea

$44.99

'Miss Saori', a dwarf bigleaf hydrangea with an origin in Japan. It is a woody deciduous shrub. A classic type, it blooms in showy mophead on old wood, beginning in summer and lingering into fall. The large, double bloom clusters of white, pink-edged double florets are held aloft fleshy, leaves on long, strong stems. After the first frost, flower clusters turn tan to caramel, and along with the shredding and peeling papery brown bark on mature plants that reveals glimpses of the underlying cinnamon hue of stems and branches, they add a textural element to the winter garden, especially pleasing in a snowy landscape.

Growing Habit:

Quickly reaches 3 ft. tall, 3 ft. wide. Filtered Sun. Deciduous. Best grown in zones 5-11. With cain-like growth, this multistemmed, suckering shrub has a compact, rounded, bushy habit and a rapid growth rate. 

Care:

Bloom buds form on old wood, bloom in summer, last into fall, and are great for drying. Partial or dappled shade, moist soil. Hydrangea macrophylla change colors with the pH of the soil. They turn pink in alkaline soil and blue in acid soils. Easy to grow and maintain, Hydrangea 'Miss Saori' prefers some morning sun and afternoon shade; rich, medium moisture, well-draining soil; and plenty of water.

Toxicity:

Hydrangeas contain substances that can be toxic to dogs. Sadly to say, hydrangeas are not normally deer resistant.
