Bang on trend as cut flowers or winter displays, hydrangeas are known the world over for their colour-changing heads of gorgeous flowers. Easy to grow and a breeze to maintain, there's a variety suitable for everyone and 'Messelina' will thrill everyone who sees it with gorgeous lace-cap heads of pink blooms.
Hydrangeas are a popular garden shrub and a particular favourite at the moment with florists where they feature in many contemporary designs of both bouquets and cut flowers. With their delicate heads of pink flowers and pretty autumn colour and leaf shape, they certainly make a statement in beds, borders and containers.
Most well-known for their ability to change colour in different soils (acid soil tend to make them bluer), Messelina is very floriferous from May onwards and will bring colour to the gardens for months, allowing you to create beautiful flowering displays in the garden - you can even use the flowers in dried flower arrangements over the festive season - a truly year-round plant.
Compact enough to grow in pots and planters on the patio or decking, their eye-catching flowers retain their beauty for a very long time. To extend the seasonal interest leave some flower heads on the plants over winter where they look gorgeous covered with frost, and of course they'll provide shelter for overwintering wildlife.
Supplied as an established plant in a 3L pot, ready for immediate planting out. Flowering from May onwards and reaching 1.2m (4ft).
