Whitehalls Plant of the Month- Hydrangea

The Hydrangea is a fast growing deciduous shrub. It produces large flower heads during the summer and early autumn. It has dark green foliage. They are hardy plants and can also be cut to be used in a floral arrangment. They can be planted in pots or in containers and are a great way to add colour to your summer garden. They grow to about 3-7m in height and 2.5 in width. They need to be grown in fertile, moisture retentive soil. The plant requires minimal pruning, however all sideshoots must be cut back in late winter.
