Hydrangea YOUME™ Passion

Hydrangea macrophylla = ‘Rie 4’

Hydrangea macrophylla YOUME® Passion = ‘Rie 4’ is a deciduous shrub that exhibits large medium-green leaves and flowers that are yellow-green to dark pink in color. The flowers bloom continuously in spring and summer. When an individual flower first opens, it looks like a ‘lace cap’ type with large sterile flowers on the edge. However, unlike the ‘lace cap’ type Hydrangea, the inflorescence eventually fills out completely creating both a mop head effect with double flowers. Passion exhibits rigid, strong basal branches. Passion can be grown for use as an indoor floral potted plant and an outdoor ornamental flowering shrub. It blooms continuously from early April to September.
