Hydrangea serrata 'Miranda' was selected by Michael Haworth-Booth, the well-known British garden writer and expert on hydrangeas, some time before 1980. As he says in his book on Hydrangeas, it is a "seedling form [of Hydrangea serrata] with a particularly limpid blue flower and a strong bushy habit." It is indeed that and more - it is also compact and free-flowering. The individual, lace-cap inflorescences are not large, bearing four to six sterile florets in a ring around the fertile flowers. Flower color will vary due to soil acidity. The foliage develops red highlights in the autumn.
