Fiona….. Hydrangea paniculata ‘Grandiflora) – I am a huge fan of most Hydrangeas, and this one is a stunning one. Probably the earliest to flower with us, beginning in mid August, and very reliable in flower production. By September, it’s in peak flowering mode, with typical creamy white huge panicles, which take on subtle pinkish tinges as the flowers age. Like all paniculatas it’s easy to manage, by cutting hard back after flowering – we now tend to cut back to the first pair of strong buds on each flowering stem – within a few years a really attractive shrub is produced. Generally they flower from August through September.
Jane and Steven….. Hydrangea – Hardy and self sufficient. A range of colours and different flowers.
