Nightingale Lacecap Hydrangea - trade gallon
Nightingale Lacecap Hydrangea - trade gallon Hydrangea macrophylla ’Nachtigall’ produces indigo blue to purple lacecap flowers on a stout, strong growing plant, if you garden on acid soil. As a "Teller" type it needs a bit of extra protection from the last blast of winter but merits the thought by the strength of color it brings to the garden. Deciduous, for part shade, it will be 5’ tall & as wide. Zones 6-9. In a research paper Dr. Hazel Wetzstein and Warner Orozco-Obando at the University of Georgia studied patterns of flower bud development among cultivars of Hydrangea macrophylla. They found that the percentage of terminal and lateral buds on dormant shoots containing flower primordia (which were dissected and evaluated microscopically) in ’Nachtigal’ were 100% of terminal buds and 100% of lateral buds.

Blue Titmouse Lacecap - trade gallon
A robust plant with very large, deep blue lacecap flowers if grown on acid soil, or a fine crimson if not. One of the most robust of the "Teller" group, Hydrangea macrophylla ’Blaumeise’ still warrants a bit of extra protection at the end of winter to assure good bloom. Flowers that grace the covers of magazines. Height to 5 feet or better. Zones 6 - 9. Some images courtesy of Raulston Arboretum.


Gentian Dome Mophead - trade gallon
A remarkable mophead of a tone of blue that is richer and lustier than any other we know. Hydrangea macrophylla ’Enziandom’ produces scintillating, deep blue blooms on acidic soil. The blooms are also good for cutting and drying which makes this old cultivar still a favorite. "The best blue hortensia we know." Van Gelderen. Zones 6-9.


Nikko Blue Mophead - 3 quart
Dr. Dirr in his book, Hydrangeas for American Gardens, writes "Will the real ’Nikko Blue’ please stand!" alluding to the confusion in the trade of this old cultivar. We obtained our stock plant from cuttings taken at the National Hydrangea Collection, Windermere, Cumbria, England thanks to Toni Lawson-Hall (who also has a fine book on hydrangeas - "Hydrangeas, A Gardeners Guide"). It’s the only form of Hydrangea macrophylla ’Nikko Blue’ we have grown. It is, we believe, true to name. Height to 5 feet and as wide. Flowers well even after cold winters. Zones 6 - 9.


Marechal Foch Mophead - 3 quart
H. m. ’Marechal Foch’ (named for the French general who was honored for his service in WW1) is an old variety bred by Mouillere that was the choice for a rich blue mophead for decades until ’Enziandom’ arrived in the 1950’s. Indeed, Enziandom’s parentage includes ’Marechal Foch’. It shouldn’t be ignored now if you read the literature. Haworth-Booth says “deep, Gentian blue, very free-flowering.” Mallet: mopheads are “produced on both terminal & lateral branches, ensuring that flowers will be produced even after the hardest winter.” Church: “it is usually smothered in blooms.” We have a few, maybe you should too. Zones 6-9.


Mathilda Gutges Hydrangea - 3 quart
A heavily pigmented mophead, Hydrangea macrophylla ’Mathilda Gutges’ will be a dark blue (with violet tones) on acid soil but changes readily to a red or pink if you garden in sweeter soil. It is short, near dwarf, at about 3 feet with good clean foliage. Often seen as a cut flower or forced for floral display at events. Zones 6 - 9. Deciduous.
