A summer flowering deciduous shrub that bears large rounded clusters of white flowers that have a greenish tinge when they first appear. It is invaluable for adding late colour to the summer garden and when planted en-masse it can be used to make an interesting informal hedge or screen. Contact with the foliage may aggrevate skin allergies.

  • 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.
