Hydrangea Fairytrail™ Green Cascade Hydrangea

Item #29808


Masses of flowers on a unique cascading habit

A Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Flowering Shrubs variety, Fairytrail™ Green is a member of the Fairytrail™ series of Cascade Hydrangea™, which first took the industry by storm with the award-winning, floriferous variety Fairytrail Bride® (Syn Runaway Bride®). A mophead version, Fairytrail Green is a medium-sized deciduous shrub that also blooms with dramatic abandon. Its gracefully cascading branches are lush with small green leaves and bouquets of cool lime green florets at every leaf node, from both terminal and lateral buds.

With its very versatile trailing habit, Fairytrail Green grows well not only in the landscape but also in containers and hanging baskets as well as along retaining walls where its long, trailing stems will nimbly spill over the edges in cascading waves.

Cascade Hydrangeas grow best in partly shady locations with average, moist, well-draining soil. They are well suited to clay soils and bred to tolerate heat. Although Cascade Hydrangeas are quite cold hardy, they bloom early in the season, and the flower buds can be damaged by unexpected late spring frosts and freezes if not protected. Also, planting them in locations that are shaded in the morning will allow ice crystals to melt gradually and reduce the risk of damage. Cascade Hydrangeas bloom on old wood, so cutting back or trimming them will negatively affect bloom of the current season or the next. It's best to avoid pruning them altogether.
