Buy Hydrangea Switch Ophelia ('Breg14') (PBR) hydrangea ( syn. Hydrangea Polestar ): Reaching just 50cm or so at maturity.

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

    This hydrangea is unique because of its really compact habit (reaching just 50cm or so at maturity), and its ability to start flowering much earlier in the year than any of the other paniculata types. Being so compact, it's a natural for a pot, but it can also be used toward the front of mixed or shrub borders. Also, the flowers change colour as they mature, which further adds to their appeal. Initially they open greenish white, but they take on a pink blush as the summer progresses, and are quite a rich pink towards the end of the season. A gem of a plant - it's easy and undemanding, but very, very rewarding.

  • Garden care: To enhance flowering prune hard in early spring, cutting back the previous season's shoots to within a few buds of the permanent, woody framework of the plant.
