A more compact Oakleaf Hydrangea with gorgeous, upstanding, white flower heads that grow up to 30cm tall. Not only are they big, the blooms are mostly sterile, so will last for an age. As they mature they change from white to pink and finally to bronze.
The large, oak shaped leaves are a lovely emerald green. In autumn they turn glorious shades of red, purple and mahogany and last into winter.
PeeGee Hydrangea are very hip and happening in the world of landscapers and for good reason; they are valuable in part shade positions, offer very impressive and long lasting in blooms and the large foliage is a knockout. This dwarf form is ideal for small gardens or the middle of borders.
Hydrangeas grow best when planted in a sheltered position of the garden where the roots are cool and moist. If you add plenty of organic matter to the soil and you will be rewarded with masses of stunning blooms.
Hydrangea flowers are good for picking. To help make the flowers last longer, you could bring a bucket of water out with you to the garden, so you can plunge them in as soon as you have cut the stem. Once you are inside, cut them again and hold them in hot, boiled water for 30 seconds before arranging in a vase.
