The Bobo® Hydrangea is a new, smaller version of the large-flowered panicle hydrangea. The profusion of white flowers is just as full and beautiful as on larger plants, but this bush only grows to 3 feet tall. As well, it has sturdy stems that keep the flowers upright, not flopping over. The dense panicles are 10 inches long, and bloom for months on end. They begin lime-green, soon turning white by early summer, and then in fall they develop rich, red-purple tones to brighten the end of the year. Unlike mop-head hydrangeas, this plant is hardy even in zone 3, so it is a very welcome arrival for gardeners in colder areas, especially if you have a smaller garden. Use it around your home, as a specimen in a small lawn, planted in front of larger shrubs, or even in planters. This long-blooming plant is a winner, and it certainly deserves a place in every garden.

  • Full-sized panicles on a smaller plant
  • Hardy to zone 3
  • Compact, rounded and free-flowering
  • White blossoms turn red-purple in fall
  • Easily grown with minimal care needed

Plant the Bobo Hydrangea is full sun or partial shade. In hotter areas some afternoon shade is beneficial. Water it well during its early years, and although mature plants resist some drought, it always grows best in richer, moist soils. It thrives in any kind of well-drained soil, and it has no significant pests or diseases. The only care needed is some simple pruning in early spring to produce the perfect display of blooms. Hardy and easy to grow, this is the perfect plant for beginners and those with little time, who want a great garden.
