Hydrangea macrophylla, perhaps one of the best known garden plants. Originally from Japan these robust and reliable plants produce a truly amazing display in summer and autumn. Hydrangea macrophylla Glam Rock is one of the new compact, extended flowering Hydrangeas. A strong, hardy grower and one of the most eye catching Hydrangeas. Found as a chance seedling, it forms mopheads that comprise abundant red florets with blue centres, each one tipped with lime green. These are off set by the lush green foliage. A compact, floriferous Hydrangea, ideal for the garden borders, patios or where space is limited. As with most Hydrangea macrophylla the flower colour will tend towards pink in alkaline soils and shades of blue in acid soils.  When growing blue varieties/cultivars treatment with Hydrangea bluing agent can help produce blue flowers however this is much more successful in pots than in the borders. Hydrangeas are very easy to grow in a slighlty shady location with a reasonable quality moist soil. They can be grown in the garden or in a pot or container. In containers use a good quality John Innes compost as this plant will be there a long time and peaty types of compost eventually degrade; become too packed and choke the roots. Ensure you feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. We recommend Osmoscote pro 8-9 month applied in the early spring. One application gives all the nutrients the plant requires for the whole year. John Innes is a soils based compost.
