The Star Gazer Hydrangea is a modern variety of lacecap hydrangea bred in Japan. It becomes a broad, spreading bush, covered in large, 9-inch flower heads that have small central flowers and a ring of large flowers around the outside – and all the flowers are double. Blooming begins in June and lasts through into November. The petals of the star-like double flowers are blue or pink, depending on your soil, and they have a bold white margin, giving this plant a truly unique look you will love. Plant it as a special specimen in your beds, in mass planting or as a low hedge. Grow it in a pot or planter box to bring something very special to your patio or terrace.

  • Lacecap variety with double flowers of pink or blue
  • Unique coloring with white edges around colored petals
  • Blooms from June to November with little attention
  • Ideal specimen shrub for that special place in your garden
  • Perfect choice for planters and boxes

The Star Gazer Hydrangea should be planted in partial shade, with morning sun being ideal. It will grow in any rich, moist, well-drained soil, but avoid very dry and very wet ground. It normally isn’t bothered by pests or diseases, and benefits from some fertilizer in spring and summer, especially when growing in pots. To keep the blooming coming and coming, simply remove spent flowers when they begin to turn green. Remove any dead wood in spring, but don’t trim the shoots back, as this will reduce blooming.
