Our Breeding Strategy

The larger of the two Hydrangea macrophylla type plants pictured on the lower left is a unique plant that suppresses the expression of the delphinidin genes that are responsible for blue, purple, and red pigmentation, while allowing for the expression of green and creamy yellow pigments. We will cross with a cultivar known for it's novel colored flowers in the yellow-orange range which are never truly seen as pure due to the masking affect of the delphinidin pigments. Both have mophead type blooms with excellent blooming characteristics.
