A compact, hardy shrub that is easy to grow with impressive results, Hydrangea serrata 'Avelroz' is a lacecap hydrangea that is suitable for both large containers and shrub borders alike. Deep pink centres to each domed cluster of flowers are surrounded by large, showy pale pink florets. Rich purple-green foliage helps to add depth to the display of colour. In more alkaline soil, the flower colour will be a more purple-red. Height: 100cm (39"). Spread: 100cm (39").

Water regularly until plants are fully established. Leave the faded hydrangea flower heads in place until the new buds swell in spring to protect the delicate buds from frost damage. Prune after flowering, reducing the stems to restrict their growth to the available space and to improve the shape of the plant. If necessary, Hydrangea paniculata will tolerate hard pruning of the oldest stems to a few buds from ground level. This will also encourage larger flower heads to be produced. After pruning hydrangeas, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost around the base of the plant. Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten.
Hydrangea serrata prefers a sunny or semi shaded position, with shelter from cold, drying winds. Grow hydrangea plants in any rich fertile, moist soil. Improve the soil prior to planting by adding with plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost, ensuring that it is mixed in thoroughly and deeply. Alternatively plant hydrangea serrata in patio containers in soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3.
