A Late Summer Display

The majority of our Hydrangea macrophylla’s in the stock beds are now displaying their autumn tones in a range of colours from pale greens and metallic blues through to maroons and wine-reds. One exception is H. ‘Gartenbaudirektor Kuhnert'(don’t be put off by the name – let’s just call it Gartenbau). This photo was taken yesterday in our garden. The plant is in its second season, and is still establishing. It flowered earlier in the season (January) and is flowering again now. This is usual for this variety often providing a heavier display in autumn which extends through to early winter. In Glyn Church’s garden I have seen it still providing a colourful display in late June / July.
