Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

A striking bicolour, mophead variety, with blue petals frosted with white edges. This eye-catching hardy shrub makes a striking focal point for patio pots and borders where it provides a long season of interest. The dark green foliage of Hydrangea macrophylla 'Bavaria' turns to shades of bronze and gold in autumn, bringing a splash of colour to fading borders. Like all macrophylla varieties, the flower colour will vary depending on the acidity of your soil, becoming increasingly mauve-purple in more alkaline soils. Height and spread: 1.2m (4’).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Hydrangea macrophylla prefers a sunny or semi shaded position, with shelter from cold, drying winds. Grow hydrangea plants in any rich fertile, moist soil. 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 hydrangea macrophylla 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. Prune after flowering, reducing the stems to restrict their growth to the available space and to improve the shape of the plant. 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.
