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

Our experience has been wonderful. Our plants arrived looking great and after planting and watering now for 2 weeks are starting to bloom! We are very pleased with our purchase. Thank you!
The plant is doing well, but the flowers are pink. I thought Nikko was naturally blue and didn’t require amending the soil.
The soil that these are grown in is more alkaline causing the pink flowers. Add some acidity to your soil and you'll see them turn more blue!
good- slow at first, but now growing well
Looks Good ; just starting to bloom and I’m looking forward to seeing what happens over the next three months
I ordered two of these and they arrived on March 18. I second guessed my original location and so I took a few days before I planted them. I went for a pretty shady spot on the north side of my house. So far, they are doing well. They arrived very small with no leaves and both have leafed out since and one has grown a bit. Happy with the progress so far!
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.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
