True blue is a challenging color to find in a low maintenance plant, much less one that comes back year after year. Then to find one that thrives in your shade garden…almost impossible. But along comes the Nikko Blue Hydrangea, (Hydrangea macrophylla 'Nikko Blue'). This shrub is THE standard for blue flowers in your shade garden.
Your seasonal show begins with flowers that are creamy perfection edged with delicate blue margins. These soon transform into a solid blue as the plant matures.
The flower mops can grow up to 6 inches long, and once your Nikko Blue gets started, it will bloom all summer! These flowers stay true blue in most soil types, but like all classic hydrangeas, the flowers will lean toward lavender or even pink if the soil is less acidic.
It only takes a few of these beauties to fill up a bed. They quickly grow to 6 feet high and just as wide every year. They make great statement plants in your front yard under trees. They also thrive as foundation plants or backing up a classic cottage border.
A ring of these around your patio table will ensure you have guests joining you for dinner all summer long. Don’t forget about the armloads of blooms you’ll be bringing in to your home, too. One flowerhead can fill a vase!
This is our most popular and best-selling hydrangea and it is sure to sell out, so don’t be left without this in your garden for another year. Buy now!

nikko blue hydrangea Review by carol
i was given a nikko blue hydrangea several years ago--it always grows good foliage but the deer eat the buds each winter so i have only had blooms the first two years--so i haven't tried any other hydrangeas yet
Nikko's doing great Review by jaspurr28
I wanted to plant blue Hydrangeas along the fence going up the side of the house in the front yard so I originally set out to find Endless Summer but found Nikko Blue instead. I am quite surprised and happy to find that Nikko blue has been doing incredible and are the true light blue I was looking for. I just give them about 1/2 a cup around each plant of Aluminum Sulfate in the early spring to make sure the blue comes out. I have 7 along the fence and I planted them last year. They did okay for their first year. They are all doing excellent and are HUGE this year with many blossoms. One is a little smaller but I planted that over a rock that I couldn't dig out completely as it was too big when planting the bush, but it still does well and grows healthy. I live in Bristol, RI and have gotten a ton of comments on them this past July 4th during our big July 4th parade weekend. I am quite pleased with the outcome of the Nikko Blue Hydrangea.
Hydrangea- Niko Blue Review by Anne Fitzsimons
MY Niko Blue, when it blooms, is beautiful. The plant is very healthy and growsto 5 or 6 feet,even when I have cut them back to the ground to restore it.However, I live in Southwestern Michigan and for the past 3 years they have notbloomed well. The old wood,which they grow on has died and is replaced with manynew stalks, but then end up getting hurt during the winter and then once again it doesnot bloom the next spring. I am ready to pull all 6 of them out and replace them witha different kind of hydrangea.The strange thing is, I have 4 in my back yard and the one that is the smallest, always seems to be o.k.
