Hydrangea 'Snow White' wins Chelsea's Plant of the Year

The Thompson & Morgan hybrid is a white lacecap selection.

June 6, 2018

Hydrangea Runaway Bride ‘Snow White’ from Thompson & Morgan was named RHS Chelsea Flower Show Plant of the Year.

‘Snow White’ flowers not only from its terminal buds as with traditional hydrangeas, but also from virtually all the lateral stem buds. Flowering from late spring/early summer well into autumn, it produces a profusion of lacecap white flowers flushed with pale pink – often 6 along each branch – on trailing stems.

“We’re completely over the moon to have taken first and third places in this year’s RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year. Runaway Bride ‘Snow White’ is a truly spectacular plant. I’ve never seen so many flowers on a hydrangea,” says Paul Masters, head of horticulture at Thompson & Morgan.
