Classic Blue Blossoms for your Yard

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!
