Mountain hydrangea is an elegant species of hydrangeas. Preziosa is a variety with pink or red inflorescence composed of sterile flowers. Deciduous leaves are mid green and have serrated margins. They are enriched with red-purple shades same as stems which bring an extra colourful effect. The shrub is erect, dense and compact.

Hydrangeas love humus-rich, constantly moist but well-drained soil. For pink shades make sure the soil is neutral or alkaline. You can use selective fertilizers to encourage flowering. Mountain hydrangea is hardier than mop-head hydrangea, still, we recommend growing it in a position sheltered from harsh winter winds. Hardy to about -23°C (USDA zone 6).
