'Sweet Seduction' is one of the Seduction series of mophead hydrangeas, bred in China to be naturally compact and prolifically flowering.
Beautifully textured pale pink blooms with ruffled edges are borne on large, extravagant flower heads carried on strong stems from June to October, a stunning sight and as summer passes they gradually change colour to purple tinted with green. The foliage is mid-green and heavily toothed, adding yet more texture to this already wonderfully tactile shrub, and autumn turns the leaves to a soft, creamy yellow.
Seduction hydrangeas are ideal for growing in large pots and make spectacular feature plants on patios, terraces and balconies, and they're also magnificent in borders, where they're large enough to make and impact but won't take over.
The large flower heads consist of sterile coloured bracts which look like flowers and make fantastic cut flowers for both summer colour and dried winter arrangements. Also, they can be left on the plant during the winter, where they'll make a home for overwintering insects and look great during frosty weather.
Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready for planting, growing to a height and spread of 1.5m (5ft).
