If you have a yard full of green and are looking for something with color that will stand out against your home and all the green, then the Nikko Blue Hydrangea is the right plant for you. The blue hydrangea grows approximately 4-6 feet tall and 4-6 feet wide and will bloom all summer within two years. The hydrangea comes in many colors, such as pink and blue, but blue is the most popular. It grows best in zones 6-9 and needs full to partial sun. The Nikko Blue Hydrangea has a contrast of color against any backdrop of shrubs and bushes. Many people like them because they bloom spring through fall, so it is a wise investment because of all the fresh-cut blooms you can get off of one bush. The aluminum in the plant provides a wide variety of blues on one bloom, and the blooms are large and full. The Blue Hydrangea does well in shady areas but can also be planted in a location of partial sun. The hydrangea can be found at many locations, such as your local tree nursery, garden center, or greenhouse.
I love the Nikko Blue Hydrangea because it makes a great addition to my yard. I love hearing my neighbors as they drive by or my family and friends visit, and my hydrangea is in full bloom. They are astounded. When my family and friends are astounded by the look, it makes me feel good too. Having a beautifully landscaped yard not only makes one feel good, but it gives you a sense of pride as well. It gives you a feeling of completion and happiness to come home too. I wouldn’t say I like it when I get cabin fever in the fall and winter because my yard is dull and brown, but it comes in pretty sunny weather. I can’t be held inside for long. I use planting my flowers, trees, and shrubs as a stress reliever…I can get out there and dig in the dirt, pulling and tugging on weeds and take my anger and frustration out. It feels wonderful!
