Dainty little lacecap flowers with a starry effect, decorate this medium-large shrub in spring-summer. Colour varies through the pink-blue spectrum according to your soil. Cold hardy, so knock your socks off, Canberra and Jindabyne.
DESCRIPTION: Large leaved deciduous shrub with lacecap flower heads, each petal pointed at the end for a starry effect. Slower growing than Hanabi. Petal colour will vary depending on the pH of your soil. As a general rule acid soil (pH 5 or below) produces blue flowers and neutral to alkaline (pH 6-7), produces mauve, pink through to red. PLANTING: Ideal for cottage gardens, woodland style gardens, mixed beds, large containers. LOCATION: Hydrangeas prefer a partly shaded position in the garden, rich soil, and plenty of water during dry periods. Very cold hardy. CARE: Water regularly during the first 8-12 weeks until the plant is established. Apply a slow release fertiliser early spring. Protect from harsh sunlight. Macrophyllas flower on old wood so site them carefully to give them space to grow. Prune them by deadheading spent flowers back to a leaf joint. HEIGHT & WIDTH: 1.5m H x 1.5m W. YOUR PLANTS These are tube-stock plants with young healthy roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide.
