PLANT OF THE MONTH
Hydrangea anomala ‘Winter Surprise’
This fabulous evergreen hydrangea deserves to be more widely grown; it’s a self-clinging climber with green young leaves in spring followed by large heads of white lacecap flowers in May and June. In autumn and winter its leaves turn a stunning deep bronzy-red. It makes a compact bushy plant of around two metres, growing well in fertile soil in sun or shade.
