    This beautiful hydrangea will be sent out in bud or flower, and it can be kept in a cool, bright room inside the house until all the flowers have faded. Then it can be planted out in the garden, where it will offer a fresh batch of flowers each year in summer. Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a black plastic pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

  • Garden care: Keep well watered and feed with a balanced liquid fertiliser at regular intervals. If you plant it outside, leave the old flower heads in place through the winter. Do keep in mind however that unless the plant is grown in acidic soil, then the flower colour will change to pink in subsequent years. 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.
