Introduced in 1975 by the well-known Belgian hybridizers Jelena and Robert de Belder, Hydrangea 'Burgundy Lace' continues to be a popular large shrub. The name describes the color and texture of the foot-long panicles as they change color in the autumn. As the sterile florets are fertilized they turn their wine colored reverse-sides up giving the panicle a new color. The leaves are quite large, 6 inches long and 3 inches wide, with reddish leaf stems. Autumn brings a color change to the leaves as well, turning them from green to yellow. We have limbed up our specimen in the shape of a small tree and have underplanted it with perennials and small shrubs. This creates a long-blooming setting that can be done even in a small garden.
