Hydrangea macrophylla 'Zorro' (Large Plant)

Hardy Shrub

Intense tooth-shaped green leaves provide a stunning background to this spectacular, rounded, deciduous shrub. Dark purple-brown stems bear large, lace-cap heads of flowers in shades of deep blue-purple in summer through to autumn. As with most Hydrangeas, those grown in alkaline soils will produce deeper pink blooms, whereas in acid they will be mostly blue dominating. Hydrangea macrophylla 'Zorro' makes for an excellent cut flower too - not to mention being awarded a prestigious RHS AGM! Height & Spread: 1.5m (5').

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.
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.
