Where to plant the Hydrangea Deep Purple Dance

You can plant this shrub in a large patio pot or plant it directly into your garden soil. It offers a range of colours as the flowers open, from a light green to a light blue changing to a rich purple / blue by mid summer.

We recommend planting the Hydrangea Deep Purple Dance in groups of three or five in your shrub border or in a large terracotta patio planter. To compliment the flower, add some summer bedding plants for a truly beautiful display. All in all, it is a really easy garden flower to grow, it offers a unique touch of colour and it will bloom year after year.
