It is truly amazing how a combination of white and pink colour can still bring something new. Panical hydrangea is what I am talking about. These easy-to-grow flowering shrubs have been available in so many selections and cultivars that some might say 'well, how can you surprise us next?'. And yet there are new varieties introduced and they do offer more or less significant features. And my confession (or confettion?) is that Confetti is my personal favourite.

CONFETTI is a breathtaking new panicle hydrangea bred by Peter Vlasveld from the Netherlands. It combines all the positives you look for in a hydrangea: large flowers of beautiful colour, strong growth, long blooming period, minimum to zero care, and excellent hardiness. The inflorescence of CONFETTI is a large, up to 30 cm long, upright, widely conical panicle composed of both sterile (large) and fertile (small) flowers which come out almost pure white in late July. In a couple of weeks they turn a very gentle shade of pink from the bottom upward. Deciduous leaves are ovate to oval, pointed, deep green and deeply veined. Stems are combination of orange, brown, and red colour. CONFETTI hydrangea makes an upright but not stiff shrub.

It will grow in almost any soil type, preferably humus-rich, moist soil that is not too heavy or shallow. Once established it does not need extra watering like big-leaf hydrangeas. Full sun is best but it will grow in shade, too. Feeding is much recommended to enhance flower size. We recommend regular pruning every spring before the buds begin to swell. By cutting at least two thirds of previous year’s growth you will get a strong shrub with large flowers and a regular shape. It is hardy to at least -34°C (USDA zone 4).
