Buy Hydrangea aspera subsp. sargentiana Gold Rush (‘Giel’) 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: full sun or 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 new and impressive hydrangea emerge dazzling gold, and each has a fine orange border around its outermost edge. They become progressively greener as they age however, so by midsummer they provide a fresh green backdrop for the showy, lacecap-like flowerheads. These contain a cluster of small lavender-blue flowers, which are surrounded by a showy ruff of white florets that give the heads a light, airy feel. Finally, the display is capped off in the autum, 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: Hydrangeas do not like to dry out. In dry weather, 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.
