All Beauty, No Bite - Wee Bit Grumpy® Hydrangea

  • Full, Deep Color
  • Sturdy Bigleaf Hydrangea
  • Blue, Purple, and Red Blooms
  • Shiny, Glossy Foliage
  • Compact Growth

Put a smile on your dreary garden’s face with the Wee Bit Grumpy® Hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla 'Stragrum')!

With deeply saturated hues depending on the pH of your soil Wee Bit Grumpy® Hydrangea has the most robust purples, blues and vibrant red blooms in tightly packed blooms (red tones in neutral or alkaline soils and purples in more acidic soils)!

Wee Bit Grumpy® Hydrangea loves basking in full sun, but will not complain about some shade too! Glossy green foliage that is toothed and compact, creates a wonderful backdrop for these impressive flowers!

Thicker, leathery leaves are more drought and droop tolerant, with the added bonus of sturdy stems to hold the pouting blooms aloft. Blooms appear on both new and old wood!

The lovely foliage takes on a maroon tinge in fall as the blooms persist long into the fall and winter. The dried blooms in fall also create beautiful dried floral arrangements!

Remember to plant a few extra for bouquets while fresh and dried, but also so Wee Bit Grumpy® Hydrangea is a favorite for butterflies too!

Lovely in containers and planters, Wee Bit Grumpy® also blends in well in a mixed shrub border and perennial beds without overtaking other plants. Add this brooding darling anywhere in the garden and landscape to create a poignant display as a specimen or en masse!

Wee Bit Grumpy® Hydrangea does great in well-drained, moist soils and only gets crotchety in soggy ground.
