Buy Hydrangea macrophylla 'Dark Angel Purple' (Black Diamonds Series) (PBR) lacecap hydrangea: Intensely coloured summer flowers

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: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    One of the new breed of mophead hydrangeas, this one was chosen by us for the intensity of the flower colour. To get the best colour, you should grow it in acidic soils or ericaceous compost, and apply hydrangea colourant at regular intervals, but even when grown in normal or alkaline soils the flower colour will revert to a good shade of pinkish red. Long-flowering additions to the summer border, hydrangeas are one of the best-loved and hardest working of all the shrubs and therefore have become a staple.

  • Garden care: Leave the old flower heads in place through the winter. As the new shoots start to emerge in spring cut back a third to a quarter of the previous seasons flowering stems to the base and cut back the remaining flower heads to the first pair of buds.

Just moved into property with 5 hydrangea bushes in front garden. The bushes have not been trimmed back and still have some flower heads although they look dead and are dark brown. My question is, do I trim them right down now or should I wait until later in the spring to see if they do anything

Hello there I would wait until after the frosts have finished to remove the faded flowerheads, and to cut back the flowered stems to a strong pair of buds. Also you can cut out any misplaced or diseased shoots. Hope this helps.

Plants with seedheads for the winter garden

Some plants have intricate seed heads which provide a profile and refuge to insects in a winter garden, and seed heads can be beguiling. However care must be taken not to allow seed heads that deliver hundreds of seed a free reign.
