More Details

A wonderful mix of large colourful pompom heads, so pH sensitive that it may have dark pink, purple and blue flowers all at the same time. A fairly compact variety excellent for a shady container or border and brilliant for picking! (As with many hydrangea this only flowers blue with sufficient aluminium in the soil).

Care Tips This shrub does best in partial shade. It requires an evenly moist soil for optimal growth. Acidic soil will ensure deep violet-blue blooms. Apply a thick mulch around the base in both summer and winter to conserve soil moisture and protect it in colder climates. It is also well-suited for use in outdoor containers.
Flowering July - November
Vase Life Float the flowers on the water in a bath overnight to maximise vase life. To dry, hang them upside down for a couple of weeks.

The plant was in good condition when it arrived. It is now planted in a border, is growing very slowly and as yet has not flowered. I will hopefully see more growth and flowers next year.
