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

  • Please note: These plants have been pruned back to the ground. This is because if they are not cut back, the stems can become too weak to support the weight of the flowers. Please rest assured that despite their 'short back and sides', these plant will quickly grow in sptring and provide a fantastic show of colour in the summer.

  • 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

  • Garden care: Hydrangeas do not like to dry out. In dry weather, soak the roots with a hose and the plant will usually recover. Remove faded flowerheads in spring after the danger of frosts, cutting back the flowered stems to a strong pair of buds. Take out misplaced or diseased shoots. Mulch young plants with a well-rotted manure or compost in spring. Once established, remove a quarter to a third of the shoots to the base of the plant.
