Due to the onset of wet autumn conditions, the leaves of the Hatfield Rose have developed some seasonal blemishes. This is normal for Autumn/winter conditions when hydrangea leaves turn off-color due to their deciduous growth habit. Some customers who have never grown hydrangeas become alarmed and report various spots and discolorations they observe on the foliage. I reassure customers that this is normal. The leaves will drop off in winter and fresh new unblemished leaves will begin to emerge in spring. This will continue year after year as part of the normal growth cycle.
Pale pink mophead fowers with serrated florets. Turn purple in a more acidic soil.
Hydrangeas vary in color depending on the pH of the soil.
