Tiny Tuff Stuff™ Mountain Hydrangea

Closely related to H. macrophylla, H. serrata has very similar cultural requirements but better flower bud hardiness for improved blooming. Tiny Tuff Stuff is a reblooming variety that will flower in early summer, then again on new growth later in the season. It has abundant, dainty lacecap flowers with doubled sepals. Flowers range from blue to pink to white – all soft delicate shades perfect for refined gardens. This is an excellent choice for climates where bigleaf hydrangeas struggle to overwinter.
