Hydrangea Preziosa

hydrangea Hydrangea ‘Preziosa’
Position: full sun or partial shade
Soil: moist well-drained moderately fertile humus-rich soil
Rate of growth: average
Flowering period: August and September
Hardiness: fully hardy

Masses of mophead flowers start out deep pink in June maturing to red with a crescendo of burgundy by the end of the year on neutral or slightly acidic soil. On acid soil the flowers will open blue or mauve. This upright deciduous hydrangea is a gorgeous specimen plant for a sunny or partially shady border where the purple-flushed foliage will add colour. It looks particularly good planted with other hydrangeas. The flowerheads are also a popular choice for dried flower arrangements.
