This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained, moderately fertile, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The unusual salmon-pink colouring of this new hydrangea was what originally caught our buyer's eye, and this, coupled with the stout stems, compact habit, larger than average flowerheads and lashings of fresh green foliage, was what made them include it in our range. It's easy to grow, very hardy, and will make an interesting addition to mixed borders and larger pots.

  • Garden care: In hot weather, thoroughly soak the plant's roots when watering to prevent it drying out. Remove faded flowerheads in spring after the danger of frosts, cutting back the flowered stems to a strong pair of buds and take out misplaced or diseased shoots. Once established, remove a quarter to a third of the shoots to the base of the plant. Cutting it back in this way will keep it compact and will also result in a branching, bushier shrub. Mulch young plants with a well-rotted manure or compost in spring.
