The combination of subtly variegated foliage and flattened flowerheads, which can last for several months, make this new hydrangea a great addition to the border. It's happiest in a lightly shaded spot, where it will help brighten up the planting scheme, and provided it is kept well watered, its undemanding nature, makes it super-easy to grow.
