Nikko Blue Hydrangea is a bold-branching deciduous shrub that blooms on old wood.  Its large serrated medium green leaves have no fall color.  The color of the lacecap clusters depends on the soil PH - acidic soils produce bright milky blue flowers, while alkaline soils produce pink-hued flowers.  The flowers are highly attractive to butterflies.  Best bloom in partial sun and rich, moist well-drained soils.
