Hydrangea serrata 'Kiyosumi'
An outstanding selection from Mt Kiyosumi in Japan, this is distinguished by russet and burgundy tones to the new foliage and the lacecap flowers are the perfect complement to that foliage with the sterile florets being white in the center of the flower and blushing into a distinct pink rim. In our shade garden, we have this paired with our collection of Rhododendron falconeri subsp. eximium with its vibrant rusty brown-orange tomentum and both plants play off of one of David Eisenhour's exquisite bronze's which in this case is the seed of a Zulu Daisy. www.eisenhoursculpture.com. The combination has its share of moments of perfection during the growing season.
