Product Information

One of the 'Magical’ series of Hydrangeas, ‘Allegretto’ is an abundantly flowering, compact, multi-stemmed and beautifully formed mophead variety.

‘Allegretto’ certainly gets itself noticed, with its prolific display of large, rich, bright red summer flowers that fade to burgundy flushed with green. The foliage takes on red and orange tones in autumn before falling, leaving behind the faded flower heads that make a striking feature over the winter.

Compact enough for container gardens and small spaces 'Allegretto' will grow into a loose mound of large leaves, making a statement wherever it is planted. When grown in a pot, this magnificent Hydrangea will bring a touch of drama to your 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 14cm pot, ready for planting.

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

  • 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

  • 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

  • Pruning is generally best carried out mid 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 these hydrangeas flower on the current season'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.
