Hydrangea Mixed

Description

Hydrangea Mixed

Hydrangeas are instantly recognisable with their large puffy flowers heads. Chances are you’ve grown up with these plants somewhere along the line or mum's popped a few in the vase upon the family dining table.

They are hardy, deciduous shrubs with large, spectacular flower heads in summer. They make excellent cut flowers and really fill up a gap in the flower border.

Now here’s the interesting bit. The flower heads change colour depending on the pH of your soil.

  • Acidic soil with a pH lower than 6.0 will give you blue or lavender-blue flowers
  • Alkaline soil with a pH of 7.0 or above brings on the pink and red
  • If you have soil between 6 and 7 you’ll get purple to bluish-pink
  • White (alba) hydrangeas don’t change with the soil acidity but remain white

If you’re desperate for a blue hydrangea but you have chalky alkaline soil, pop her in a container with acid-based ericaceous potting mix.

Hydrangea likes sun to part shade and protection from the wind because those flower-heads are heavy and catch in a strong breeze.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I’m a large border filler, I rock a container, and make an attractive cut flower display of big puffy marshmallow blooms.

  • I grow to: I’ll reach 1.5 - 2 metres in good conditions.

  • Where to place me:  I like the sun in the morning and shade in the afternoon. If you’re not sure where that gives me part shade all day such as under a tree.

  • How far to space me:  I need a fair amount of space - a metre at least.

  • Soil Conditions:  I like rich moist soils. Use fertiliser and mulch if yours is thin. 

    Beautifully grown and mature in size with developed roots and guaranteed sun hardened. These plants can be inserted straight into the ground and make an excellent garden plant.
