Product Description

If you are looking to add a bit of low maintenance drama to your garden, then this collection of Hydrangea 'Cherry Explosion' is for you!

A compact variety of Hydrangea macrophylla with huge flower power, literally an explosion of cherry red blooms! These big and beautiful red petals surround clusters of pastel pink, smaller, star-shaped flowers, creating a simply stunning contrast. Simply fabulous when in full flower and will stand out in your garden incredibly well. It's also perfectly suited to growing in a large pot as an eye-catching feature on a terrace or balcony.

The foliage is lush and green with serrated leaves in spring and summer, and in autumn the gorgeous lace cap flowerheads turn from cherry red to burgundy and finish the season in a perfect purple tone. As with all hydrangeas, the faded flowers look spectacular if left on the plant over winter.

Supplied as 3 x established plants in 9cm pots, ready for planting, growing to a height of 1.2m (4ft).

Plant Information

Top Tips

To extend the seasonal interest leave some flower heads on the plants over winter where they look gorgeous covered with frost, and of course they'll provide shelter for overwintering wildlife.

Care Guide

  • Just plant in position, water well, and add some fertiliser - they’ll burst into growth and flower profusely all summer!
  • This plant is at its best in a most soil as long as it is well drained, in sun or partial shade. The more sun the plant gets, the better the flower colour. A moisture-loving plant, remember to water regularly and deeply.
  • Hardy in the UK, frost can cause a lot of damage to young buds, reducing the number of flowers, so it’s advisable to protect your plant with fleece if freezing weather is likely.
  • Pruning is generally best carried out early spring. A general tidy up is usually all that is needed and consists of removing the dead bloom from each stem, cutting back to the first strong, healthy pair of buds down from the faded flower.
  • As Hydrangeas flower on the previous year's growth, cut out 1 or 2 of the oldest stems, in spring, at the base to encourage the production of new, replacement growth that will carry more flowers.
