A mophead, but not just any mophead, 'Ayesha' has cup-shaped "petals" similar to old-fashioned lilacs, opening creamy white, then becoming either sky-blue or light pink depending upon the acidity of the soil. Perhaps best of all its summer blooms have a lovely-delicate fragrance. A compliment to the light flowers, the dense growth of leaves are variegated silver and would benefit from a foil of darker plants.
