The Minor Care Requirements of Nikko Blue Hydrangea
Taking care of any hydrangea is simple and takes a short time commitment. Here are the things that hydrangeas require:
- Select a partially sunny spot in the garden
- Fertilize it twice yearly (early spring and fall)
- Prune to the desired shape in the fall; dead spent blossoms as they wither
- Provide an inch of water weekly (more if the site receives more sun than shade)
- Add a one-inch layer of mulch to insulate the shrub's base and roots in the fall if you live in a cold region.
The Vivid Beauty of the Nikko Blue Hydrangea Shrub
Gardners covet the Nikko Blue Hydrangea for its impressive and showy flowers. This shrub can reach six feet tall and wide if you let it grow wild, although most gardeners cut it back every autumn. The leaves are dark and glossy green, oval in shape, and with a light textural feel.
The stems are woody, tan, and sturdy enough to support the blue, fluffy-looking blossoms. Flowers average almost six inches, with dozens of petite blue to purple discs making up the petals. The blooms are long-lasting and have a sweet, lightly floral fragrance that will beckon the bees to visit them.

The plants are too small. I’m not sure they can survive . I’ll let you know.
I bought many (48) bare root Nikko Hydrangeas and they arrived in excellent condition. After 3 weeks in the ground each have stems of leaves. My yard will be Amazing next year!!!

l don't believe the plant was the height advertised, but it was alive and appeared healthy. I only got the plant 3 days ago and planted it the same day. Hard to say more.
I expected more robust plants.
