Description / Hydrangea Fairytrail™ Green Cascade Flowering Shrub

Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Flowering Shrubs proudly introduces Fairytrail™ Green, a captivating addition to the esteemed Fairytrail™ series of cascade hydrangea varieties. Originating from the acclaimed Fairytrail Bride® (Syn Runaway Bride®), this exceptional mophead hydrangea plant variety boasts medium-sized, deciduous shrubbery that bursts with exuberance. Each aspect of Fairytrail Green, from its lush, cascading branches to its clusters of enchanting lime green florets, is a testament to its botanical brilliance. The graceful foliage, adorned with small green leaves, creates a mesmerizing display at every leaf node, courtesy of both terminal and lateral buds.

Fairytrail Green offers remarkable versatility with its trailing habit, thriving not only in traditional landscape settings but also in containers, hanging baskets, and along retaining walls. Its long, trailing stems gracefully spill over edges, creating cascading waves of natural beauty that enhance any outdoor space.

Ideal for partly shady locations with average, moist, well-draining soil, cascade hydrangeas, including Fairytrail Green, are well-suited for clay soils and are bred to withstand heat. This variety is a Hydrangea hybrid, but hydrangeas encompass a diverse array of hydrangea types, including smooth hydrangeas, lacecap hydrangeas, and panicle hydrangeas. The United States is particularly renowned for its rich variety of hydrangea species, each offering unique characteristics and beauty.

While cascade hydrangeas are known for their cold hardiness, early bloom stages may render them susceptible to damage from late spring frosts and freezes if left unprotected. Optimal planting spots with morning sun and afternoon shade facilitate gradual melting of ice crystals, reducing the risk of harm to delicate blooms. Additionally, understanding the hydrangea plant growing season is essential for nurturing these plants to their full potential, from the early spring emergence of foliage to the vibrant blooms that adorn gardens in early summer.

Given that cascade hydrangeas bloom on old wood, pruning should be approached with caution to preserve current and subsequent season blooms. Additionally, managing common issues such as powdery mildew throughout the growing season ensures that Fairytrail Green and other hydrangea plant varieties thrive in optimal conditions, showcasing their beauty year after year.

Fairytrail Green stands as a shining example of horticultural excellence, embodying the passion and dedication of breeders like Ushio Sakazaki.

Discover tips to ensure your hydrangeas thrive, from soil preparation to pruning techniques, by following our expert advice on the Hydrangea Planting and General Care Guide and the How to Prune Hydrangea Plants blog.
