Hydrangea macrophylla Arthur Billard**

Hydrangea macrophylla Arthur Billard**

Arthur Billard is a fantastic red mophead; one of the earliest to flower. It is one of the few macrophylla varieties to have autumn coloured foliage with leaves turning tones of red & yellow . It is a lovely compact plant ideal for growing in a pot or tub.  An old variety – how this has been ignored for decades is a mystery.

Hydrangea macrophylla Bloody Marvellous (Merveille Sanguine)

Hydrangea macrophylla Bloody Marvellous

UNIQUE plant. Bloody Marvellous has rich dark chocolate foliage and superb blood-red mophead flowers that gradually turn wine-purple. In Europe this is called Merveille Sanguine which translates as Blood-coloured Marvel.  It can be a little tender and does prefer a light shade situation to prevent petal burn.

Hydrangea macrophylla Bridal Bouquet

 Hydrangea macrophylla Bridal Bouquet

Appropriate name for this beautiful white mophead. Grow in shade and you’ll have the added joy of green antique flowers in autumn time.  It is reasonably sun-tolerant as long as the soil is not too dry, though you may see browning of the petals particularly when exposed to hot midday sun.

One of the best pink mopheads. It has lovely round balls of vibrant pink flowers in lime soils. If planted in acid soils the flowers are a lovely mauve colour. Colonel Durham is a variety from our series of Grandma’s Hydrangea’s – a range of charming old Grandma Hydrangeas that were forgotten and nearly lost to cultivation.
