Buy Hydrangea aspera subsp. sargentiana Gold Rush ('Giel') hydrangea ( syn. Hydrangea Goldrush ): Golden leaves and summer flowers

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained, moderately fertile, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: August to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The leaves of this impressive hydrangea emerge dazzling gold, and each has a fine orange border around its outermost edge. They become progressively greener as they age, but will often develop brown tips by midsummer. The showy, lacecap-like flowerheads start appearing towards the end of summer and these contain a cluster of small lavender-blue flowers that is surrounded by a showy ruff of white florets. These give the heads a light, airy feel. Finally, the display is capped off in the autumn, when the foliage changes colour once again - this time turning orange and yellow before it is shed for winter. It makes a stunning specimen for borders and larger pots.

  • Garden care: To prevent leaf scorch, this hydrangea is best grown in lightly dappled shade and kept well watered. If it does get too dry, soak the roots with a hose and the plant will usually recover. Remove faded flowerheads in spring after the danger of frosts, cutting back the flowered stems to a strong pair of buds. Take out misplaced or diseased shoots. Mulch young plants with a well-rotted manure or compost in spring. Once established, remove a quarter to a third of the shoots to the base of the plant.
