From fine Japanese breeding comes this exceptional Hydrangea, its petals forming a slender star on every floret! With changing colors and increasing bloom size over time, 'Inspire' is a terrific addition to any shade landscape.

The first petals are chartreuse, deepening to pink and then to purple over time. New petals arise as the flower matures as well, increasing the size and density of these big mophead blooms. So showy, so longlasting!

'Inspire' is just 3 to 4 feet high and wide, with a dense habit and plenty of blooms arising on old and new wood. This is a great shrub for northern climates, where late spring frosts may kill the first set of buds but not prevent subsequent flowering in summer and fall. But it's also quite heat- and humidity-tolerant, making it a good choice for the south, midwest, and far west as well.

Site 'Inspire' in partial shade everywhere but the northernmost edge of its hardiness range. Like all Hydrangeas, it appreciates regular moisture, but beyond this has few requirements for success. Prepare for many seasons of ever-changing beauty from this remarkable shrub! Zones 5 to 9.
