Ornamental Features

Jetstream™ Hydrangea features bold fragrant conical white flowers with pink overtones at the ends of the branches from late spring to mid summer. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It has dark green deciduous foliage. The large lobed leaves turn an outstanding brick red in the fall. The peeling brick red bark adds an interesting dimension to the landscape.

This shrub performs well in both full sun and full shade. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution, and will benefit from being planted in a relatively sheltered location. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder microclimates. This is a selection of a native North American species.
