Hydrangea macrophylla, commonly called big leaf hydrangea, is a deciduous shrub with a rounded habit, typically grows 3-6’ tall and as wide unless damaged by harsh winters or pruned smaller. It generally features serrate, obovate to elliptic, dark green leaves (4-8” long) and large clusters of long-blooming summer flowers in either lacecap form (flattened flower clusters of small fertile florets with scattered showy sterile florets often forming a marginal ring) or mophead form (globose flower clusters of mostly showy sterile florets). Rich cherry-pink blossoms with paler pink centers positively pop against the dark green foliage of this stunning Lacecap Hydrangea. They smother a hardy shrub that is superbly sized for the edge of the border or containers. Cherry Explosion is pH-sensitive, and the blooms will shade lavender in acidic soil. Northern gardeners will be pleased with its ability to bloom well on old and new wood. ‘McKay’ PP 28,757
