Description

Ideal for containers, balconies and small gardens, Hydrangea paniculata Switch® 'Ophelia' is a uniquely compact variety of this popular hardy shrub. Masses of lacy flowerheads bear colour-changing blooms that open greenish white before becoming suffused with a rosy pink that deepens as the weather cools. Not only is 'Ophelia' uniquely compact, but it also bursts into flower much earlier than other paniculata varieties, before continuing to bloom for five months. The dried flowerheads remain on the plant to provide winter interest. Easy to grow, undemanding and shade-tolerant, this dwarf hydrangea is a truly rewarding plant to grow. Height and spread: 50cm (20in).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Hydrangea paniculata prefers a sunny or semi-shaded position, with shelter from cold, drying winds. Grow hydrangea plants in any non-alkaline, 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.
More Info
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. If necessary, Hydrangea paniculata will tolerate hard pruning of the oldest stems to a few buds from ground level. This will also encourage larger flower heads to be produced. After pruning hydrangeas, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost around the base of the plant. Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten.
