'Strawberries & Cream' hydrangea

This new hot pink lace cap hydrangea has a very compact mounding form, maxing out at just 3-4 feet wide and tall. It blooms constantly from early summer through first frost. As a bonus, it's one of the few hydrangea macrophyllas, which typically require at least partial shade, that can tolerate full morning sun. 'Strawberries & Cream' will do well in patio containers as well as in the garden.(Credit: Handout)
