Mophead flowers with unusual semi-double or double florets, soft pink to clear blue depending on the soil pH. Flowers late in the season.
Moist, well drained, reasonably fertile, humus-rich soil. Sun or part shade, preferably with shelter from cold, drying winds. May become chlorotic on very shallow chalky soil. Performs well in seaside locations.
The flower colour is influenced by the soil pH.
Good shrub for late season colour.
