Awarded the prestigious title of Plant of the Year for 2018 at Chelsea Flower Show!
This is one of the most floriferous and vigorous hydrangeas we've ever seen. Most Hydrangeas produce just one bloom on the end of each branch; but Hydrangea hybrid Runaway Bride® 'Snow White' flowers from the lateral buds along the length of each stem. The result of this unique trait? You can expect up to 6 large blooms on every branch to create a breathtaking, showy display!
Pure white, lace-cap flowers, flushed with pale pink, are carried on gently trailing stems from late spring, continuing all through the summer. Neat, compact and perfectly hardy, this exceptionally elegant shrub makes a fantastic specimen for patio containers or mixed borders. Wherever you plant it, Hydrangea hybrid Runaway Bride® 'Snow White' will undoubtedly be a star attraction! Height: 120cm (47"). Spread: 120cm (47").
Paul Masters, Head of Horticulture at Thompson & Morgan, comments this afternoon from RHS Chelsea Flower Show:We’re completely over the moon to have taken first and third place in the RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year 2018. Hydrangea hybrid Runaway Bride® 'Snow White' is a truly spectacular plant - I’ve never seen so many flowers on a hydrangea! To see six blooms on each branch is unheard of. It really is incredible!

Hydrangea 'Runaway Bride' is a particularly heavy feeder, but demands less water than most macrophylla cultivars. Feed and water regularly, but avoid waterlogging the soil.
Leave the faded hydrangea flower heads in place until the new buds swell in spring to protect the delicate buds from frost damage.
Prune the old stems after flowering, leaving the new growth in situ, as this Hydrangea flowers on new growth unlike most others. After pruning hydrangeas, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost around the base of the plant. Caution: All parts of hydrangea will upset the stomach if eaten. The foliage may also aggravate skin allergies.
