Although appearing to be an H. macrophylla, this is actually a hybrid with H. serrata. Makes a low bushy plant to about 1m high, bearing densely packed mopheads composed of white florets with conspicuous red margins. Foliage emerges heavily stained claret-red. Even attractive in bud. The H. serrata parent is 'Kiyosumi'. Enjoys a half shaded position.
