Buy Hydrangea Miss Saori ('H2002') (PBR) RHS Chelsea Flower Show Plant of the Year 2014: RHS Chelsea Flower Show Plant of the Year 2014

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: June to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Winner of RHS Chelsea plant of the year 2014, this stunning new hydrangea can flower on both new and old wood, so it has a very long period of interest. The petals of the sterile, double flowers have a deep rose margin, creating a picotee effect with the creamy white centre. They look dazzling against the backdrop of lush green foliage, which takes on burgundy overtones in spring and autumn.

  • 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.

Small pretty shrub

This is a low growing hydrangea with attractive two colour flowerheads. I bought two last year and planted them into tubs for the patio. The flowerheads were heavy and floppy so I had to put plant supports into the tubs. They survived the bad winter weather despite being under several inches of snow for an extended period. I planted them into the garden at the start of April this year and they are growing well.

I planted this hydrangea as part of a border with some shade. Such an unusual and pretty flower. Looking forward to its second year of growth.

This is such an attractive variety of Hydrangea and came to me very well packed, healthy and ready to be re-planted.

This is a beautiful hydrangea with large flower heads. I am hoping it survives this winter as I it is in a pot.

Bought 6 of these, each one of them was a good size and healthy, produced flowers just a few weeks after planting. The display was impressive, multiple blooms even when the plants were so young. The flowers look just as the pictures advertise them and they have very attractive red leaves. They keep the colour very well throughout the summer, early autumn it fades to a more uniform pink then late autumn some shades of green appear before the cold arrives. They did not do very well in the sun with last year's heat waves (some of the leaves and flowers got sunburn), although this was due to my lack of knowledge rather than fault with the plants themselves. This year I moved them to a more shaded spot and I am hoping I will get the same display. Would definitely recommend.

healthy plants

I bought 6 of these for my garden. They are healthy, well branched and better size than competitor's at a similar price. At the moment they have large dark red leaves. They haven't flowered yet as early season but I can see plenty of buds. I will add images as they start flowering.

Very robust, pretty shrub

I bought 'Miss Saori' last autumn. It arrived as little more than a stick (fair enough since it's a rather new and special little shrub). Mine has had its first flower on it in full bloom for about two weeks now (and I think has another couple on the way). We've had horrible summer weather,including a lot of wind and some torrential rain and lengthy storms. The blooms look pretty much undamaged (unlike some other plants which have been bashed to bits by the weather) I'm utterly thrilled with the resilience of this plant so far.The colours on the flowers are merging to be a more uniform pink as they age, but it is still a very attractive bloom.

Hydrangeas - which one to choose?

Hydrangeas come in many guises, but the blue and pink mopheads and lacecaps that flower in summer are generally forms of Hydrangea macrophylla, an Asian species that prefers lots of summer rainfall and drier winters. This can be tricky in drier gardens, b

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.
