Buy Hydrangea macrophylla 'Sheila' (Dutch Ladies Series) lacecap hydrangea: Perfect for fresh or died arrangements

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

    Initially bred for the cut-flower market, this lacecap hydrangea also makes a fine specimen for the shrub border, where it will provide lots of late summer colour. The white-eyed sterile flowers turn blush pink in neutral soils or bluish in acidic soils, and will make excellent additions to dried flower arrangements.

  • Garden care: To enhance flowering prune in spring, cut back the flowered stems to a strong pair of buds below each flower-head. Once established, remove a quarter to a third of the old shoots to the base of the plant.

Exceptional quality


We chose this product because of the name 'Sheila' as a lasting tribute to a lovely lady that we lost from our bowls club, everyone commented on the quality of the plant, the flowers that lasted the whole summer, looking forward to a magnificent display this coming season as a lasting tribute to her, it far exceeded our expectations.




A lovely sugary pink


I planted this in my front garden then realised it was getting crowded out so dug it up and put it in a large pot in the rear garden. It was more than happy in both locations and sent the most gorgeous pink flowers all summer.
