HYDRANGEA PANICULATA

Panicle Hydrangeas

Hydrangea paniculata is native of cool temperate and sub-tropical regions of Japan, China and Sakhalin, where it grows as a deciduous shrub or small tree to 8m in height, at altitudes to about 1300m.H.

H. paniculata was first described and named in 1829 by the German physician and botanist Philipp Franz von Siebold while working for the Dutch East India Company based on Deshima Island within Nagasaki harbour, Japan. Granted limited access to the mainland to carry out his medical duties, at a time when other foreigners were excluded, Siebold used the opportunity to collect and describe the native plants, including H. paniculata. Siebold’s determination to explore this closed country eventually resulted in him falling foul of the authorities and he was banished from Japan before the plant could be exported to Europe. Fortunately, he was allowed to return 30 years later, when he succeeded in sending back the cultivated form of H. paniculata now known as ‘Grandiflora’
