Hydrangeas at Downside

We have an amazing selection of Hydrangeas on the nursery at present. These useful shrubs are becoming increasingly popular. They are shade tolerant and the light-coloured ones can make useful underplanting or brighten up a gloomy corner.

Hydrangea Peteolaris – an excellent climber, especially for a north wall
Hydrangea Seemannii – particularly good for climbing up trees with stunning white flowers
Hydrangea Aspera – happy in dry, difficult places with pink or mauve lace-cap flowers. We have Anthony Bullivant (mauve/pink), Hot chocolate (pink, chocolate foliage), Villosa (mauve/pink).
Hydrangea Arborescens – we have the much-loved white snowball headed Annabelle and the pink Invincible Spirit
Hydrangea Quercifolia – cones of white flowers, the oak leaves colour bronze purple in the autumn
– Snow Queen – single, Snowflake, double
– PeeWee – dwarf
Hydrangea Paniculata, white, lime or pink-tinged cones of flowers: Pinky Winky, Candlelight Little Lime, Magical Kilimanjaro
Hydrangea Macrophylla – this includes both mop-headed and lace-cap types
Lace caps: Lanarth white, Redstart, Dr Jean Varnier, pink Quadricolor (light pink variegated foliage)
Mop heads:
– Soeur Thérèse – white not fading to pink
– Générale Vicomtesse de Vibraye (pink blue)
– Merveille Sanguine – deep red flowers with red-tinged leaves
– Ayesha – cupped lilac florets with a light perfume
– Magical Rhapsody – green mopheads that hold their colour, perfect for cutting
(The final image of the H Annabel was taken at Monet’s water lily garden in Giverny at the end of August this year)
