This is a more compact cousin to Hydrangea Vanille Fraise, growing only to 120cm making it well suited to any situation where space is limited. Hydrangea Sundae Fraise has large conical spikes of pink flushed, white flowers appearing from late summer. As the flowers age they change to a deeper reddish pink flush, reminiscent of the colour in a strawberry sundae! A glorious colour combination and welcome at a time of year when many garden plants are past their best going into Autumn. This is a tough and hardy shrub that would make a handsome specimen in most situations, or a very colourful informal flowering hedge.
Hydrangea Sundae Fraise 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 plants back hard to a low framework in Early Spring for best flowering and remove any weak or crossing stems at the same time. We recommend adding Rootgrow when planting all Hydrangeas to give them the best start.
