Hydrangeas make a great statement in your garden with their huge flower heads. They require little maintenance and prefer dappled shade and rich, moist soils. White flowers remain white, however blue flowers are intensified by acid conditions while pink and reds are intensified by alkaline soils. You can help maintain the blue colour by fertilising with Aluminium Sulphate. The climbing Hydrangea petiolaris is one of the best climbers for shady south facing walls. This deciduous form puts on a show of creamy flowers in summer, and is self clinging.

A french variety hydrangea Merveille Sanguine, translates to Bloody Marvellous. This really is a bloody marvelous Hydrangea with rich blood, red large flower heads, on a deep bronze-green foliage.
