This is a wonderful Hydrangea that is a reliable bloomer even without protection. I have it planted against the north side of the house where it gets late afternoon sun. It blooms from late June through till frost. My blooms are pink. The plant grows well. It has been here for 4 years. This plant never wilts.

From the sources "Hydrangeas for American Gardens," by Michael A. Dirr (2004), and "Encyclopedia of Hydrangeas" C.J. and D.M. Van Gelderen (2004 - Timber Press):

A cultivar that may no longer exist in its true form, or is extremely rare. Grows 4' to 5' tall with narrow, evenly tapered leaves. Introduced in 1879 from Japan by Charles Maries. Flowers are white to rosy pink alkaline; pale blue in soil with lots of aluminum. Sepals round and entire, sometimes scattered over the fertile flowers, but usually a ring.
