Hydrangea Candybelle Bubblegum Hedging
Hydrangea Candybelle Bubblegum (Hydrangea arborescens Candybelle Bubblegum) Sevenbark Hydrangea
A stunning new hydrangea closely related to Hydrangea Annabelle. Hydrangea Candybelle Bubblegum has the same enormous spherical flowerheads but in a clear bubblegum pink colour, held on strong wiry stems that dont flop they make very good cut flowers if you can bear to pick them. Like many new and improved plants the growth is bushy and self branching, this new plant will only grow to 120cm making it good in large and small gardens. Like its cousin this is a tough plant that would look just right in most situations whether grown as a shrub or an informal hedge feature.
Hydrangea Candybelle Bubblegum is easy to grow in sun or partial shade, they prefer a rich moisture retaining soil that doesnt dry out too much in Summer, thinnner and lighter soils would benefit from a good amount of organic matter being well mixed in the hole at planting time and these glorious shrubs enjoy a good mulch being applied during Spring to get the best from them, this is especially the case for younger plants. Prune the old flower heads off in spring, reducing the plants back to a strong bud and removing any weak or crossing stems. We recommend adding Rootgrow when planting all Hydrangeas to give them the best start.
