Hydrangeas are a delight to behold and receive. Although we think of them as a late summer bloom, here at Burford the indoor version are a big spring-time favourite.
Hydrangea macrophylla is the type of hygrangea bred as flowering house plants. They are also known as hortensia hydrangeas, or Hydrangea hortensia. For a stand-out show indoors, try Hydrangea macrophylla Double Dutch White. This is a special new variety featuring one large mophead with double, star-shaped blooms, held upright above dark green leaves.
An instant brightener for any room, these easy-care hydrangeas are brilliant as a gift, and the Double Dutch gives double the enjoyment, over many months.
We regret, due to winter temperatures, this plant is only available for in-store purchase.
Care: Cool environment. Water before they become dry and deadhead before blooms fade. If totally dry, plunge the hydrangea pot in tepid water for a few minutes until the bubbles stop.
Planting: Bred for indoor use. If you do decide to plant Hydrangea macrophylla outside, please note they are not terribly hardy, with the buds and stems being susceptable to frost, so do plant it in a sheltered, partially shaded position and provide winter protection. As a deciduous shrub, if outside it can grow to 120cm.
