Shrub

I'm digging the complicated flowers of Hydrangea serrata in general and those of Fuji-no-Taki have me captivated. They are entirely different from any hydrangea in our garden. They start out greenish white (or mottled green-white), then open white, remaining white as they age.

It's the structure that is so odd. It's a small, misshapen mophead. The sterile florets are double with soft, a puffy round shape, like clouds or pillows.

My apologies that my pictures don't do the flowers justice - it's because my experience with this cultivar is green - I was given the parent plant last summer and have never seen it before in gardens. I will work on improving these pics.

Fuji-no-Taki is a serrata species and therefore more reliably cold hardy than many macrophylla types.

  • double white florets on a mophead-like head
  • single specimen and accent use
  • large container use
  • grouping and massing - large swaths
  • flower and shrub borders
  • tolerant of salt spray so great for maritime climates
  • heat tolerant

To Make It Thrive
Give Fuji-no-Taki hydrangea rich soil plus consistent moisture in a soil that drains. It may require extra watering, but avoid standing water. Grow it in full shade or afternoon shade in the deep south (zones 8 and 9), not only for the foliage, but so the flowers don't get sun scald. Full sun is okay farther north. For flowering in cold climates, situate it in a warm, sheltered location. During the ups and downs of spring temps here in Zone 8a - we cover to protect flower buds.

Is this the same a 'Fuji Waterfall'?

No, it's not the same. 'Fuji Waterfall' is a lacecap with sterile florets on long pedicles, so they dangle or waterfall down a little bit. Individual flower sepals are pointy, giving the sterile florets a star-like look. 'Fuji-no-Taki' has double florets on what apears to be a small, weird-shaped mophead. There is no dangling of anything and the individual sepals are rounded and cloud-like.

While both cultivars have white flowers that include double sterile florets, they are uniqely and distinctly different. Both are lovely.
