Bring some colour with beautiful blossom
The Hydrangea, also known as Hortensia, is one of the hardiest of shrubs. Native to Asia and America, the Hydrangea belongs to a collection of plants that includes over 75 similar species.
Although this beautiful flowering shrub isn't evergreen, you can keep your Hydrangea producing beautiful blooms for longer by deadheading regularly. This will prolong the flowering for as long as possible. Leave Autumn blooms in place, so that new growth is not encouraged too near the end of the season.
We have three different colours available:
