From Michael A. Dirr in "Hydrangeas for American Gardens", (2004). Flowers pale pink in alkaline soil, blue/mauve in acid soil. Attractive dark green glossy foliage. 5' to 6' tall. No zone hardiness given.

Extra-large sky-blue flowers. Requires very acidic soil for good color. A pH higher than 6.0 will give murky pinky-mauve flowers.
