Growing Minty Ice Hydrangeas

The Flair & Flavours range are tough, small shrubs that do well in containers. As Reblooming Hydrangeas, they flower on new and old wood. These hardy Hydrangeas like it cool and moist, so a bit of shade and shelter are preferable to an open sunny situation that tends to get dry in summer: too much sun and wind tends to damage the foliage.

Rich, well-drained soil that has been improved with plenty of compost will hold the moisture and nutrients that hydrangeas love. Prune out older wood on mature plants in Autumn or late Winter to make way for new growth.

The soil pH can affect the availability of aluminium in the soil, which affects the colour of the flowers. Acidic soil, which is high in available aluminium, turns flowers blue, and lime or alkaline conditions turn them pink (by making the aluminium unavailable).

In Your Garden Design

Blue is a wonderfully striking colour for gardens and when planted alongside elegant urban doors or a set of rural steps, these minty-blue coloured Hydrangeas would be a fabulous way of framing these features. We love them in containers singly but they would also work well in a blue and white planting scheme. Pair with Hydrangea Black Steel Zebra (white) which is magnificently urban and trendy with their black stems or partner with Sweet Marshmallow. Azaleas, hostas, hellebores and ferns make great companion plants.
