Hydrangea Macrophylla Dark Angel Purple: A relatively new introduction to the Hydrangea Macrophylla family. This exclusive variety of hydrangea, is part of the black diamond series which showcases its dark foliage throughout the year it exhibits exceptional flowering against an attractive dark foliage. The lace cap flowers come in various shades ranging from dark red to dark purple. The foliage ranges from dark green to almost black this creates an excellent contrast with the flower colours. This is a very well branched and rich - flowering plant.

What to expect: Your plant will arrive with an actual plant size of 50-60cm. Planted in a 10 litre/28cm pot. With 12-18 buds. If purchased mid to late April plants will be showing some colour in the bud. Photo provided is of the plant in full bloom. Please remember these plants are deciduous so depending on the time of year purchased they may not arrive looking like the picture.

Planting Position: Full sun through to partial shade. Soil: Moist but well drained, Clay, sand, loam Suitable for container planting: Yes ideal for both ground and container. Eventual height and spread: Upto 1.5 Metres with a 2 metre spread. Growth speed. Slow to medium Growth Habit: Bushy Flowering period: May to September Pruning: Generally lace cap Hydrangea are hardier than the mophead varieties and should be cut back to the second pair of leaves below the head, once the flowers have died back, it may also be beneficial to prune one or two of the oldest stems right to the base this will encourage new growth which will be more floriferous. Foliage: Dark green to almost black with dark red through to dark purple flowers. Evergreen: No Hardiness: -10

These Hydrangea are very easy to grow, they tolerate most soils and are equally as happy in sun through to shade, your plant will appreciate some fertiliser in early spring but do not over do it as this may effect the amount of flowers it produces. They will appreciate being cut back quite hard to approximately 12 inches above ground this is best done in early spring, just as the new growth begins and should be cut to the first pair of good buds. This plant needs no special requirements in winter.
