Hydrangea aspera 'Macrophylla' (Large Plant)

Hardy Shrub

Hydrangea aspera 'Macrophylla' is the ultimate showpiece Hydrangea, which looks great in woodland borders and cottage garden planting schemes. The large, deciduous shrubs have an open branching habit, with felted leaves and gorgeous, lacecap flowers through the summer.


The Chinese Hydrangea is a robust plant that needs space to develop, but it is quick to establish and easy to prune and maintain. The flower heads are simply beautiful, with violet florets, surrounded by pale lilac bracts. Height and spread: 250cm (98").

Hydrangea aspera ‘Macrophylla’ prefers a sunny or semi shaded position, with shelter from cold, drying winds. Grow hydrangea plants in any rich fertile, moist soil. Improve the soil prior to planting by adding with plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost, ensuring that it is mixed in thoroughly and deeply. Alternatively plant hydrangea macrophylla in patio containers in soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3.
Water regularly until plants are fully established. Leave the faded hydrangea flower heads in place until the new buds swell in spring to protect the delicate buds from frost damage. Prune after flowering, reducing the stems to restrict their growth to the available space and to improve the shape of the plant. After pruning hydrangeas, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost around the base of the plant. Caution: Contact with hydrangea foliage may irritate the skin and eyes and all parts are harmful if eaten.
