A sure bet in your landscape, Bloomables® Double Down® Bigleaf Hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla 'Hydrsrpdow') is a fantastic reblooming mophead, but its flowers are truly unique! Fully double, richly-hued pink, purple or blue flowers develop in late spring and open in summer. Persist through early fall, the dried flower heads even extend into winter as dried decoration!

Double Down® maintains a compact, well-behaved habit, making it perfect for small gardens and containers. The aptly-named big leaves are broad green and quilted for handsome texture among other shrubs or as a fantastic hedge!

Bigleaf Hydrangeas change color depending on the pH of your soil. Classic bright pink in alkaline soil and bold blue in acidic soil. Neutral soil gives you a lovely purple somewhere in between. Reaching a modest 3-4 feet in height and width, these are compact rounded flowering shrubs for the hotter growing zones!

Planting and Application:

Hydrangea shrubs of this size are perfect for container use, pot them up on a sunny balcony or porch, or line large planters around your backyard seating areas for bold color all summer! The large leaves lend a fantastic backdrop for smaller perennials and shrubs throughout the year and are ideal as facer shrubs to hide bare leggy stems of larger bushes and trees!

Bloomables® Bigleaf Hydrangea are great low borders and edging, so plant a modernized Cottage and perennial garden, in rows along the cooler side of your home or garage’s foundation, along walkways and paths or welcome you home by planting them by your front entry or the entrance to your driveway! That way you’ll have plenty to bring indoors as cut flowers.
