A more compact Oakleaf Hydrangea with flower heads up to 30cm tall. The blooms are mostly sterile and so last for months, changing from white to pink and then bronze. The large, oak shaped leaves are a lovely green on opening and turn shades of red, purple and mahogany in autumn.
PeeGee Hydrangea are very hip and happening in the world of landscapers and for good reason. They are valuable in part shade positions and offer very impressive and long lasting in blooms. This dwarf form is ideal for small gardens or the middle of borders.
Hydrangeas grow best planted in a sheltered position of the garden where the roots are cool and moist. Adding 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, bring a bucket of water out with you to the garden, 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.
