Product Information

A beautifully formed mophead hydrangea, 'Colour Dream' lives up to its name with full, round heads of large ruffled petals in pink and white bicolour that change over time to take on a green-flushed tone.

Gowing into a loose mound of large leaves, this glamourous hydrangea makes a statement wherever it is planted and when grown in a pot, 'Colour Dream' will bring an attractive touch to your decking, patio or balcony.

Being a mophead, the large flower heads consist of sterile coloured bracts which look like flowers and these are super as cut flowers for both summer colour and dried winter arrangements.

Easy to grow and relatively compact - it reaches just 1.5m (5ft) high and wide - this is a hydrangea which can be grown by anyone whatever their level of experience.

Supplied as an established plant in a 3L pot, ready for planting out or potting on.

Top Tips

To extend the seasonal interest leave some flower heads on the plants over winter where they look gorgeous covered with frost, and of course they'll provide shelter for overwintering wildlife.

Care Information

Planting Advice for Hydrangea macrophylla 'Colour Dream':

  • March, October and November are the best months for planting hydrangeas.
  • Hydrangeas do best in a clay-like, fertile soil, although they'll do well in most soils as long as it is well drained, in sun or part shade. The more sun the plant gets, the better the flower colour.
  • Just plant in position, water well, and add a general-purpose fertiliser or our own specialist hydrangea feed - they’ll burst into growth and flower profusely all summer!

Aftercare Advice for your Colour Dream:

  • Hardy in the UK, frost can cause a lot of damage to young buds, reducing the number of flowers, so protect your plant with fleece if freezing weather is likely.
  • Another way to prevent damage is to leave flowering stems in place until spring.
  • Hydrangeas are moisture-loving plants, so remember to water regularly and deeply especially for container plants.

Pruning Advice for Hydrangea macrophylla:

  • 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.
