Product Details

  • Botanical Name: Hydrangea macrophylla 'Kompeito' PP20998
  • Height: 3-4 feet
  • Spacing: 3 - 5 feet
  • Depth: Dig a hole twice the size as the container and set the plant at the same level it is growing at in the container, firm soil and water thoroughly.
  • Spread: 3 - 5 feet
  • Light Required: Part shade. Tolerates full sun only if grown in consistently moist soils.
  • Color: Double pink or blue blooms. In alkaline soils, the stars are pink; in acidic, they're blue.
  • Foliage: Large, dark green leaves are very attractive and provide a lush covering.
  • Blooms: From summer to fall. Blooms on old wood in the spring, and reblooms in summer on new wood.
  • Zone: 5-9
  • Form: Deciduous shrub with a compact and mounded form.
  • Flower Form: Gorgeous lacecap clusters of small blooms.
  • Soil Requirements: Rich, medium moisture, well-drained soils.
  • Growth Rate: Moderate growth rate.
  • Pruning: Remove faded flowers to encourage more, repeat blooms. Generally, it requires little pruning. If needed, prune immediately after flowering by cutting back flowering stems to a pair of healthy buds. Remove weak or winter-damaged stems in late winter/early spring.
  • Comments: Gorgeous, lacecap clusters of small double pink or blue blooms shine against the handsome, lush, dark green foliage. If soil pH is alkaline, the white blooms will have a pink star. If soil pH is acidic, the star at the center of each flower will be blue. This deciduous shrub makes a beautiful specimen or accept plant in a partially shaded landscape, or plant several en masse or as a hedge for big impact. Blooms on old wood in spring and on new wood in summer and into fall, creating a long season of color. Flowers also add elegance to fresh bouquets and dried arrangements. Little pruning is necessary, but flowers more prolifically if spent blooms are removed.
