Large Hydrangea Macrophylla Plant 'Red Angel Violet' 7.5 Litre Pot: . Red Angel Violet forms parts of the wonderful 'Royalty Collection' a collection of outstanding quality Hydrangeas, cultivated by one of our award winning growers. Flowers are of the mophead variety, what makes this particular variety slightly different from most of the other 'Royalty Collection is the dark shaded foliage which can lie anywhere between dark green and light black. Flowers as the name suggests are two tone, they emerge pale red with creamy centres pictures 3,4 and 5,  as the season progresses they change to dark violet with a very slight cream centre, pictures 4 and 5.

 What to expect: Your Hydrangea can arrive at different stages of growth depending when purchased. The pictures were taken between May and July 2016 currently at the time of listing ( July)  the plants have an actual height, excluding the pot of around 60cm, flowers are in full bloom, quality is exceptionally good. Flowering period is very long and can last well into late October or even early November

 

Planting position: Best planted in a lightly shaded warm spot, never close to a tree. Tree roots are the dominant force and will deprive your hydrangea of the nutrition it needs

Suitable for container planting: Yes a great choice

Position: Full sun through to partial shade.

Soil: Happy in all soil types excluding heavy clay

Eventual Height at maturity: Approximately 80 to 100cm Flowering Period: June through to late October

Winter Hardy: Yes for the whole UK, copes well with rain, wind and moderate to Frost. Severe frosts will not be fatal it may damage the buds this will almost certainly result in smaller flowers, whilst this isnt relevant to plants that are going to live in the south it may be advisable to wrap in a winter fleece in the colder parts of the Uk.

Evergreen: No Deciduous

Pruning: Cut your Hydrangea back to a strong pair of buds in early spring after the frosts have cleared, can be cut earlier if you have planted in a pot and can bring it inside to escape the worse of the winter weather.

Hydrangea plants do not like having dry roots. The plant needs watering regularly, both in a pot and in the soil during warm periods. You should thereby try as much as possible to keep the flowers dry. If pot planted we would recommend you stand your pot on water dish and water from the base. Do not allow to dry out.
