Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Ayesha’ is no one trick pony. The pretty puckered flowers would be reason enough to welcome this beauty into your garden. You could sit back and say “you have earned your place with your glorious blooms, no need for anymore effort”. But then, as a autumnal bonus, the serrated leaves blush scarlet before they fall in embarrassment at their beauty. I pointed out the red hemmed stegosaurus foliage to Ben today. “Have you seen how wonderful these leaves are? They remind me of dinosaurs”. He squinted, tried his very best and made a hurried excuse. Perhaps I should have drawn a picture.
