Positive redchic01 On May 29, 2007, redchic01 from southern willamette valley, OR (Zone 7a) wrote:

I've had this plant for 5 years now and it has been very easy to grow and maintain! As of yet it has never reverted and is still going to bloom very well this year even though I didn't prune it last season. The flower color will change lightly by changing the ph as with many other of the macrophylla's.

Positive Happenstance On Apr 15, 2005, Happenstance from Northern California, CA wrote:

No reversion seen yet in its second season. An excellent clear chartreusey yellow, very bright and welcome in an afternoon shade garden. Delicate pink flower heads. It's a definite winner!

Neutral lmelling On Dec 2, 2004, lmelling from Ithaca, NY (Zone 5b) wrote:

In "Hydrangeas for American Gardens," by Michael A. Dirr (2004), it says that "like all variegated types, this one reverts --terribly." "Foliage has bright yellow splotches on variegated green/white leaves; more colorful that 'Mariesii variegata'. Flowers are white/cream alkaline, to light blue to gentian in acid soil." No zone hardiness given.
