Why Nikko Blue Hydrangeas?
One of the extremely popular Mop Head Hydrangeas, with large, rounded bloom heads, the Nikko is second to none. It delivers beautiful flowers throughout the summer in a show of rich color as you've never seen.
Nikko Blue bears long-lasting large, full blooms during the summer months. The colorful flowers flourish throughout the bush, not just on top, and their rich color is outstanding. Neat and uniform, it makes a unique hedge. Scatter a few throughout your yard or garden for a spectacular display of color that typically outlasts your perennials in the mid-summer heat!
Even better? It couldn't be easier to grow. This type of hydrangea grows quickly to its full size. It only takes two or three years for this beauty to reach its mature size, and each summer it returns as a nice, full, rounded plant with no pruning needed.

Customer Reviews & Photos
- front yard
I wanted to say how impressed I am with the quality of the trees I've received from you. I was going to give up on online ordering of plants because what I received was either dead or dying. NOTHING grew. Your plants arrive healthy and are currently in my front yard surviving some pretty harsh weather. They still look good and I truly believe that they will flourish. Plan to order many more items from you; just have to decide where to put them!
Hi! I just received my two Hydrangeas; Endless Summer and Nikko Blue - both in pristine condition and packaged perfectly!! Hydrangeas grow fantastically well for me in Florida in the 9B zone in potted containers and in the ground! If you’re wondering how to find out your soil’s PH you can get a kit from your county extension office or buy one on Amazon for $10 or so. Fast and easy to do!
Arrived in fairly good condition. Has required a lot of watering to keep from wilting. Hopeful it will last for years to come!
I have had this plant for about 5 years now. That is an estimate. I bought it here at Fast Growing Trees. I live on Long Island NY zone 7. I get beautiful Blue flowers every summer However the plant is no bigger than the day I bought it. It pretty much dies to the ground every winter then comes up from the bottom of the ground in early spring. By late June or early July it is covered with flowers. But it never grows any taller.
the plants arrived fine I followed the instructions but they died. The shipping speed was pretty slow so the roots probably died during shipment
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Nikko Blue Hydrangea in an area that receives full to partial sunlight (3 to 6 hours of sunlight). Nikko Blue Hydrangeas can tolerate full sun but prefer partial sun and shade. Morning sun and afternoon shade provide optimal growing conditions.
Dig a hole about twice the size of your shrub's rootball and just as deep. Place your shrub, backfill the soil and water to settle the roots.
2. Watering: Generally, you'll water your shrub about once weekly. If you're not sure when to water, simply check the soil about 3 inches down and water when this area is dry.
3. Fertilizing: Feed your Nikko Blue Hydrangea in the early spring and late summer with an acidic fertilizer.
