Hydrangea Princess Diana Hedging
Hydrangea macrophylla Princess Diana
A beautiful and compact new Mophead Hydrangea, Princess Diana has unique star shaped double flowers held in large globe shaped heads. The flowers open light pink, the colour darkens and deepens as the flowers age. This is a floriferous plant with a continuous display of flowers from June until Autumn. Hydrangea Princess Diana has lush green foliage and the flowers are held on sturdy stems so they dont flop over in wet weather, and they are very good for cutting. A great lookingt, bushy and compact shrub that could take pride of place in beds and borders, a woodland garden, in larger containers or even as a very classy informal flowering hedge!
Hydrangea Princess Diana 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.
