Hydrangea mariesii 'Variegated'
Deep green leaves with near white margins, pale blue lacecap flowers on old wood, though the foliage is much more important than the flower.
Plant Type(s): Flowering Shrub
Spring/Summer Care: Best if not pruned, but if need be, prune no later than mid-summer.
Autumn/Winter Care: No pruning or maintenance needed.
Fertilizer Needs: Apply a slow-release fertilizer in spring (at first signs of growth). This variety is pH-dependent: apply acidic fertilizers to enhance lavender/purple tones, alkaline fertilizers for pinks.
