Hydrangeas: from the showy Hydrangea Paniculata to the dark beauty of Hydrangea Macrophylla Dark Angel

Hydrangeas will flower spectacularly throughout the summer and there are many cultivars to choose from in addition to the more commonly known Hydrangea Mopheads. Mainly deciduous shrubs, they are very happy in positions of partial shade. They are easy to prune and can be shaped into very attractive shrubs as they mature. We have many varieties that are not particular about soil type. All they need is plenty of water during the flowering season. We also have two varieties of climbing hydrangea in stock.

Hydrangea Paniculata:
This family of Hydrangea Paniculata (panicle) is named for the fabulous cone shaped flowers it produces in high summer. Hydrangea Paniculata Grandiflora is a larger white-flowering variety. Hydrangea Paniculata Wim’s Red produces white flowers that, as the name suggests, take on a deep red hue as the summer progresses.
