Fairytrail Bride® Cascade Hydrangea

Meet the first ever Cascade Hydrangea® available in North America! We’re confident you’ll love its unique horizontal growing habit, especially since flowers develop at every leaf cluster along its graceful, trailing stems. Its summer borne florets are filled with deckle-edged petals, bringing a frilly, lacy look to the landscape. There are no limits to the ways you can use Fairytrail Bride® in the garden – it’s ready to wow your neighbors in hanging baskets, containers, cascading over retaining walls, and filling in mixed beds.

We recommend part sun (4-6 hrs sun/day) for this plant; morning shade is particularly key for its success. See, the Cascade hydrangea plant itself is actually quite hardy. However, it blooms much, much earlier than other old wood-blooming hydrangeas, like big leaf and mountain. This makes its beautiful blooms extra susceptible to spring frosts and freezes. We found that if the plant is grown in a spot with morning shade, then the potential damage from those spring cold snaps is mitigated because the frost melts more slowly, limiting the damage it causes to the delicate floral tissue.
