Positive hortensia On Jun 20, 2006, hortensia from Langley, BC, BC (Zone 8b) wrote:

This plant is only 4 years old in my garden and planted in a partially shaded location. In spite of this, it is loaded with buds this year, and has always been healthy, sending up long vigorous canes well clothed with matte green leaves.

Renowned for the size of its blooms (almost 5" across) this wonderful gallica is most usually known as Du Maitre d'Ecole. Though I had a hard time tracking it down, it was worth the wait. Graham Thomas says of it "One of the great flowers of old days."
