The Zorro Hydrangea is a magnificent modern variety growing to 5 feet tall, with lacecap flower clusters on black stems. New leafy stems are also black, with large dark-green leaves. The large, flat, flower heads have a circle of outer flowers that are large, and a center of many tiny flowers. In acid soils the flowers are a wonderful rich, indigo blue color, making a gorgeous display in your garden. The black stems and flat flower heads give this variety a modern, stylish look quite different, and much more weatherproof, than older mophead types. Grow it in your garden beds, as a screen or edging, or in a large tub.

  • Bold, blue, lacecap flowers on black stems
  • Attractive foliage and form even when not in bloom
  • Blooms from mid-summer to early fall
  • Grows well in all warmer zones
  • Blue color depends on soil acidity

Grow your Zorro Hydrangea in partial shade – morning sun only, or a north-facing position, are ideal. It will also grow in continuous light dappled shade. The soil should be rich, moist and well-drained, with plenty of organic material added, and used annually as mulch. Water regularly during summer. Usually free of pests or diseases, this variety needs very little pruning – just dead-head back to the first buds in fall, and remove any weak stems in spring.
