The Nikko Blue Hydrangea, with the botanical name of Hydrangea arborescens, is also known as Grandiflora and Smooth Hydrangea.
Native to Asia and the Americas, Nikko Blue Hydrangea is a deciduous plant that is widely cultivated in temperate deciduous climates. The Nikko Blue Hydrangea is a perennial with stunning green foliage and snowy-blue blooms. It is a native shrub to the southeastern United States.
Nikko Blue Hydrangeas grow best in full sun in the morning and shade in the afternoon rays. This shrub enjoys fertile, well-drained soil that is improved with fertilizer. Add fertilizer one or two times maximum during the growing season since too much fertilizer will produce fewer flowers. Plant your Nikko Blue Hydrangea in the spring after all danger of frost has passed. You must dig a hole as deep as the root ball and 2-3 times as wide. Loosen the roots of the Nikko Blue Hydrangea bulbs and plant them using plenty of rich soil. Then give the bulbs a thorough soaking at the base of the plant for one week as it establishes.
Nikko Blue Hydrangeas need deep watering three times a week. Water them at their roots, preferably in the morning, since the afternoon heat can cause wilting. As mentioned earlier, if your Nikko Blue Hydrangea does not bloom, you may be over-fertilizing it, or it could be damaged from frost. Nikko Blue Hydrangeas that bloom from the previous season’s growth requires a layer of mulch or straw to protect the plant in the winter. Lightly prune your Nikko Blue Hydrangeas to remove diseased or dead branches, yet do not prune away stems that will bloom.
The Nikko Blue Hydrangea is a beautiful ornamental shrub that will add a pop of vibrant leafy green and snowy color to your garden landscape. Plant them in groups to create a privacy wall or in containers to move them around your garden as a decorative plant. Our Nikko Blue Hydrangea may reach up to 5 feet tall and bear a canopy spreading up to 6 feet. These hardy shrubs are simple to maintain and can be a focal point to brighten a shady spot in your home garden landscape. Nikko Blue Hydrangeas can be shaped through pruning, although, as mentioned earlier, only prune to remove dead leaves and stems.
