Product Information

A classic hydrangea but with a twist! Skilfully crafted onto a tall straight stem to produce a spectacular ball of foliage and flower at the top, this hydrangea standard recreates a classic garden favourite with a modern edge.

Flowering throughout the summer, the standard form instantly elevates the display to add a different dimension to your summer flower show. Perfect for planting in a pot and creating a centrepiece on the patio, or for placing by the side of a doorway, entrance or pathway, standard form plants have become a firm favourite for adding a touch of sophistication to traditional flowering and evergreen plants.

Bearing the same clusters of flowers as the bush varieties, the blooms will open in a pale shade but ultimate colour will depend on soil conditions – one of the most interesting aspects of a hydrangea!

Plant in a pot or in borders in a nice sunny spot and with a little pruning to tidy into shape every now and then, you’ll have a low maintenance shrub that will bring something a little bit different to your garden.

Top Tips

Hydrangeas love to be kept well watered, and will produce bigger, glossier, more substantial leaves when provided with regular moisture.

Try to use rainwater to water hydrangeas, since mains hard water can affect the flower colour, turning blue flowers mauve or pink.

Hydrangeas with blue or pink flowers tend to be blue in acid soil conditions, mauve in acid to neutral soil conditions, and pink in alkaline conditions. Cultivars with blue flowers can be kept blue by growing the plants in acidic soil (pH 4.5-5), or by acidifying soils.  Hydrangea colourants can also be used according to the manufacturer’s instructions.


 

Care Information

  • This plant is at its best in a most soil as long as it is well drained, in sun or partial shade. The more sun the plant gets, the better the flower colour.
  • A moisture-loving plant, remember to water regularly and deeply.
  • Hardy in the UK, frost can cause a lot of damage to young buds, reducing the number of flowers, so it’s advisable to protect your plant with fleece if freezing weather is likely.
  • Pruning is generally best carried out early spring. A general tidy up is usually all that is needed and consists of removing the dead bloom from each stem, cutting back to the first strong, healthy pair of buds down from the faded flower.
  • As Hydrangeas flower on the previous year's growth, cut out 1 or 2 of the oldest stems, in spring, at the base to encourage the production of new, replacement growth that will carry more flowers.
