Hydrangea macrophylla Mop Head WhiteSold Out
Hydrangeas are an essential part of any English country garden, or woodland garden. Macrophylla of the mop head variety form neat deciduous bushes of large olive green oval leaves with slightly serrated edges and this white one has great round balls of tiny little flowerheads in late summer and autumn, which are adored by pollinators. An added attraction is that the leaves often colour well during the autumn, turning shades of red, orange and yellow. Growing to around 1.2m x 1.2m high and wide means this variety will fill a space in almost any garden, or work wrell in a large patio container, as long as it is kept moist. Hydrangeas prefer semi shade and don't like to dry out, but otherwise are relatively unfussy about soil type. Leave the flower heads on over winter, as these help to protect new buds from frost, and then, when the risk of hard frosts has passed, cut back any branches required to just above a good pair of buds.
