Sowing, Seeds, Planting Plant in a cool, semi-shady part of the garden. Avoid exposed east-facing sites, where cold winds may damage young spring growth. Dry sunny spots are also best avoided. Work plenty of organic matter into the soil prior to planting and sprinkle mycorrhizal fungi into the base of the planting hole, firm in and water well until established.
Care Tips This shrub does best in partial shade. It requires an evenly moist soil for optimal growth. Acidic soil will ensure lavender / mauve 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.

This Hydrangea is utterly gorgeous. Datk leaves, "square shaped" flowers of a dramatic sharp pink. This is a robust and handsome person!

Thankyou Sarah Raven customer service! You are excellent!
