Hardy Shrub

This stunning variety is one of the most eye catching hydrangeas available.

Found as a chance seedling, this incredible variety is repeat flowering producing a second flush of flowers later in the season. As with many varieties, Hydrangea macrophylla 'Glam Rock' produces slightly different colour tones depending on the soil pH. This robust, hardy shrub makes a superb addition to borders or large patio containers. Height and spread: 120cm (48").

Hydrangea 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.

  1. Exquisite plant

    By Christiana Lambrias 12-08-2014

    Simply Beautiful. Bright pinky-red flowers have gradually bloomed through out the summer. Very happy with this addition to my garden. As an amateur gardener, I am over the moon with this hardy shrub. When it arrived several months ago, it was very bare with only a few little branches growing. However it has really thrived and looks a totally different plant. So pleased with the hydrangea glam rock.
