Blushing Bride Bigleaf Hydrangea

Hydrangea macrophylla 'Blushing Bride' PP17,169

Blushing Bride flowering in branded container

Just as the name suggests, Blushing Bride has pure white semi-double florets, which mature to blush pink or Carolina blue, depending on soil pH. Starting in late spring, Blushing Bride graces the garden with big round balls of soft blooms, providing an elegant touch of color in the garden all the way into fall. Long a favorite of European gardeners, Blushing Bride can serve as a focal point or can be used in the garden to separate louder, harsher colors providing harmony and ease. The special joy of Blushing Bride is its adaptability both in your landscape and for cut hydrangea arrangements. With its gorgeous pure white hydrangea color, it is also a favorite for wedding bouquets, arrangements and hydrangea centerpieces.
