Although the flowers aren’t fragrant, this is one of those plants that just begs you to bury your face in its soft pillowy blooms. A cross between a Mophead hydrangea and a Lace-cap, Hydrangea ‘Cloudi’ bears lace-cap flowers that are rounded like a Mophead. Like a Lace-cap, the blooms bear varying amounts of both small fertile flowers and large infertile ones but aren’t as flattened. Instead, they blossom into cloud-like, rounded panicles of white florets which gradually turn pastel blue or pink, depending on soil acidity. This strong-growing hydrangea holds its blooms on sturdy, upright stems which won’t flop after heavy wind and rain. Compact growing, its height can easily be restricted further by pruning, making it perfect for small borders and containers. Height and spread: 80-120cm (31-47in).

1 x 3 Litre Potted Plant (Height 30cm+) (KF3217)

Grow in a sunny or semi shaded position, with shelter from cold, drying winds in any rich fertile soil that remains reliably moist throughout the year. Improve the soil prior to planting by adding with plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost, ensuring that it is mixed in thoroughly and deeply. Alternatively plant in patio containers in soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3.

Water regularly until plants are fully established. Leave the faded hydrangea flower heads in place until the new buds swell in spring to protect the delicate buds from frost damage. In early spring, dead head the old flowers, cutting them back to a pair of healthy buds just below. 

In late winter or early spring remove one or two of the oldest stems to the base. This will encourage the development of new, replacement shoots and keep the shrub productive.

After pruning hydrangeas, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost around the base of the plant. Caution: Contact with hydrangea foliage may irritate the skin and eyes and all parts are harmful if eaten.
