11 apr Hydrangea paniculata Skyfall
Hydrangea paniculata Skyfall invariably reminds me of comics about Asterix and Obelix. The former 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.
Skyfall has huge inflorescences filled with unusual, hyacinth-like flowers. The plant is fully frost resistant (up to -30 degrees), grows up to about 120 cm in height, thanks to which it has a wide range of usage. It can grow in any garden and in a large container on the terrace (requires a sunny or semi-shaded position and regular watering). Blooms on annual shoots, which means that spring, strong pruning, will be conducive to the production of more branches and more intensive flowering. Remember about good fertilization – flowering consumes a lot of energy (in the nursery we use long-acting fertilizers).
