Product Details
Product Details

Hydrangea 'Lacecap Blue' is a mid-sized deciduous shrub with large flattened flower heads on strong upright stems. The central flower cluster has small blue buds from which small, lemon-yellow flowers emerge. Encircling the central flower cluster are large flattened flowers with tones of bold blue and lilac. The larger sterile flowers attract bees and butterflies to the small fertile flowers in the centre. In autumn the deep-green toothed leaves take on purple tones for additional seasonal interest.

Hydrangea 'Lacecap Blue' is generally a hardy shrub in the UK, but best with some shelter from cold, drying winds to prevent damage to new buds. For the brightest flowering, 'Lacecap blue' should be grown in full sun with some afternoon shade. To retain the strong blue flower colour, the soil must remain acidic, less than a pH of 6.5. If the soil is neutral or alkaline the flowers will become more pink with only a hint of blue.

Growing to a height and spread of up to 2.5m, Hydrangea 'Lacecap Blue' is excellent for larger beds and herbaceous borders and can look especially charming if combined with other Hydrangea varieties for a multi-coloured summer display.

Although pruning isn't necessary, a reasonable prune back in early spring will encourage vigorous growth and increased flower production with good colour. You can also choose to remove the spent flowers in autumn to tidy up the plant. To renovate an overgrown plant, cut off all the stems at the base, but you may need to wait a year before it's ready to flower again.
