19 apr Hydrangea paniculata Skyfall
Hydrangea paniculata Skyfall invariably reminds me of comics about Asterix and Obelix. The ancient Gauls, the main characters of these comics, were afraid of one thing – that the sky would fall on their heads. I wonder how they would cope with the amazing impression that this hydrangea makes.
Hydrangea Skyfall has huge inflorescences filled with unusual, hyacinth-like flowers. The plant is fully frost resistant (up to -30 degrees) and grows up to about 120 cm in height. It has a wide range of usage, for example, every tiny garden and /or a large container on the terrace, because it grows in a moderate way. Skyfall requires a sunny or semi-shaded position and regular watering. Blooms on annual shoots. To strength the decorative effect, we strongly recommend strong pruning in spring. As a result of this treatment, the plants will get more branches and more flowers. Remember about good fertilization because flowering consumes a lot of energy (in the nursery we use long-acting fertilizers).
The variety awarded with a gold medal in the competition of novelties at the Flowers Expo in Moscow in 2018 and with a silver medal at the GrootGroenPlus in 2019.
