Hydrangea ‘Hercules’ looks great on its own and brings plenty of oomph to a mixed border with its height and huge flowerheads made up of hundreds of green-white blooms with a pink tinge that appear from July to September. Its foliage turns from green to vibrant autumnal colours later in the year. Grow this dynamic hardy shrub in sun or partial shade in borders and mass plantings, along woodland edges or in large pots. The flowers of ‘Hercules’ are 40cm wide and their strong upright stems are perfect for cutting. This shrub has a height and spread of up to two metres (79ins).

Description

  • Great for later summer colour and form
  • Attracts beneficial pollinators
  • Great in sunny or partially shaded borders or woodland edges
  • Perfect for cut flowers and look good dried
  • Good for mixing with perennials

Hydrangea ‘Hercules’ towers over many other shrubs and the sheer size of its flowerheads gives it a real ‘wow factor’.

This shrub’s 40cm-wide flowerheads are made up of hundreds of green-white blooms with a pink tinge. They are great for cutting and look good fresh or dried. In the garden the faded flowerheads provide visual interest over the winter months.

A great shrub for the back of a border.

How you will receive your plants:

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, this will be supplied in a 9cm pot (measured by the diameter of the pot). With a well strong root system in place, you can plant out in the garden straight away and leave them to establish, or you can grow them in larger pots as they are still young, before planting out to create a stunning garden display.

Can’t plant straight away?

If you aren't able to plant out straight away, then ensure they stay moist. You can place pots on a saucer or tray of shallow water so they are able to stay hydrated. Aim to have them planted within 3 days.

When to plant and what to expect at different times of the year

You can plant hardy shrubs, trees and perennials at any time of the year avoiding the two extremes of heat and cold. During the summer months when it is hot and dry the need for watering becomes crucial to aid successful establishment and in the winter when the soil is frozen the plants will not be in active growth either above or below ground and risk getting cold damage. The same is true on the stage or growth you can expect your plants to be delivered in and this will be directly related to the time of year and the season.

When ordering through the year, here’s a summary of what to expect when receiving your plants:

Spring Months: Plants supplied in spring will be starting to show signs of active growth above and below ground.

Summer Months: Plants supplied in the late summer will be more advanced in size and flower stage

Autumn Months: In the autumn plants will be changing colour, showing signs of leaf colour breakdown and be preparing to shut down for winter.

Winter Months: Plants ordered and supplied during the winter months will be dormant and therefore may not be showing growth above the soil level or consist of bare branches with no leaves or bare roots with no soil.

These are all perfectly normal and natural for these types of plants growing in the northern hemisphere. All will still have a very healthy root system that can be planted when the weather is favourable by keeping the new soil level equal to the pot level and therefore not covering the crown of the plant at all. Planting during the autumn and winter months will allow for early establishment in the season and a bigger and better display throughout the main growing season.
