Hydrangea

Hydrangea quercifolia (Oak leaf hydrangea) A easy to grow group of deciduous shrubs ranging in height from 1mt to 3mt that have large oak leaf shaped leaves that turn a wonderful red / purple colour in autumn, usually flowers still remain on plant during autumn to give dramatic effect with both leaf colour and fading flowers. They are best grown in a position sheltered from hot afternoon sun in a slightly acidic soil. Pruned hard in winter (down to 30cm) will encourage larger flower heads and keep the plant bushy, pruned lightly will encourage smaller flower heads but the will be more flowers. Hydrangea paniculate ( pee gee hydrangea) Paniculata hydrangeas will grow and bloom in a wide variety of climates in a partial shade position protected from strong winds, a desirable trait of all paniculatas is their tolerance for pruning. One can prune them at any time except when they begin forming bloom heads in the summer. If pruned hard in winter down to 30 cm the flower heads will be larger if lightly pruned in winter the flower heads will be smaller but there will be more flowers. The paniculata is the ONLY hydrangea that can be pruned into a tree form. Many paniculata blooms develop a lovely pink shade as the blooms age, extending their beauty into the autumn.
