Planting Pros Recommend:

The Cityline® Mars Hydrangea bush (Hydrangea macrophylla CITYLINE Mars 'Ramars') is an ornamental flowering shrub with spectacular blooms! As it ages, the mophead bloom will transform into a lovely, soft green, transition to pink and white, or blue and white, then fade to tan for fall and winter interest. It's a compact plant so it's easy to plant several in close quarters and small spaces.

Your Cityline® Mars Hydrangea is a small plant that produces glorious six-inch blooms atop strong stems. The blooms are bi-colored, with either a rose-white accent or blue-white, depending upon the pH of your soil. You can adjust the color of your flower by making additions to the soil pH as necessary

Growing to a demure 1-3 mature feet in height and descent 3-4 feet mature spread, these wide-spreading, but lower growing deciduous Bigleaf Hydrangeas are great for low hedges and property division! Hardy throughout USDA growing zones 5 to 9, they tolerate heat but not full sun in the warmer of their favored growing zone range.

Planting and Application:

It would make an outstanding border plant, and would also be quite stunning as a container or patio plant as well. Go ahead and pop one into a large planter or container on your porch or patio, screening in seating areas and acting as a buffer between the sidewalk and the street. The glossy, dark foliage provides the perfect backdrop for the spectacular flowers, and its compact nature ensures a neat and tidy appearance in the yard that doesn't detract from the showy bloom.

The Hydrangea is a versatile shrub that looks great in almost any location! Drop one or more into a cottage garden, urban courtyard or as a backdrop to your perennial garden! Pollinators adore these blossoms and you will too in your cutting garden! Snip a few of the blossoms for long-lasting indoor color for bouquets, or dry some for future use. The bloom is highly versatile and often used in crafts and other projects!
