Hydrangea Blue Balled 5 Litre: In 2015 De Jong Plant B.V. has introduced the Hydrangea Music Collection®. This new concept of rich flowering Hydrangea is available in seven different mophead varieties, all with their own colouring. At The I.P.M. in Essen the Music Collection®  won the second prize at the Show Your Colours Award 2015, it has since picked up a long line of awards for innovation and beauty, Blue Ballad is a beautiful concept. We will of course be bringing you more varieties and sizes from the Music Collection during the spring and summer months. Other varieties will include Deep Purple Dance, Pink Pop and Soft Pink Salsa. All are beautiful and all flower on new wood, so new flowers every year. Blue Ballads flowers can on occasion emerge with a hint of pink, do not be concerned they mature to blue

What to expect: Beautiful large established plants, first 3 pictures taken mid June 2020, last 3 pictures taken late May, beautiful plants!

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 90/1008cm

Flowering Period: July through to late September

Winter Hardy: Yes for the whole UK, copes well with rain, wind and moderate 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

Q) How do i keep these plants blue? 

A) To keep Hydrangea blue they need acidic soil or if pot planted ericaceous compost, try adding Hydrangea colourant or suplhate of iron to the planting area, the latter should be sprinkled on the compost, not the foliage, preferbaly in late summer.
