Large Flowers All Summer Long!
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.

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. 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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
I was a little skeptical about having the flowers mailed to me. when I received them I was worried they would die but as soon as I planted them and started to water they did so well! I’m so happy with my purchase
I look forward to the growth and blossoms if the plants survive the ideous heat and drought we have had. I water as much as I can but worry it’s not enough.
Nikko Blue Hydrangea
Plant is beautiful. So far I have it in a pot but hope to plant it in the ground this fall.
Arrived in good condition & is acclimating well. I can't wait to watch it grow!
Unfortunately deer love the tender leaves
I put in 3 of the plants and the one closest to the front door is doing very well and gaining in size- very healthy - the other 2 were eaten to the stems and they keep trying to grow back- so the plants themselves have good potential - just not a great choice at our new house that I didn’t know had so many hungry deer!
We're sorry to hear about your deer problem! Try spraying a deer repellent on the plants. This should help deter them from chewing them! https://www.fast-growing-trees.com/products/deer-repellent
