Deep Purple™ Hydrangea lives up to its name, covered with the richest purple blossoms of any hydrangea. Each blossom begins a chartreuse green color, opening to a deep violet hue. Early blooming and long-lasting flower heads provide months of color in the summer garden, and look stunning in bouquets and vases. Plants form a compact mound, perfect for large containers to decorate porches and patios. Strong stems support oversized mophead blooms above dark green foliage. (Hydrangea macrophylla)

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information

36-48" tall x 12-18” wide. Deep Purple™ Hydrangea is simply covered in vibrant blooms that are sure to turn heads. Young plants make lovely centerpieces for summer gatherings. The deep green foliage is relatively small for a bigleaf hydrangea, and it has a distinctive dark coloration that complements the vivid blooms. We recommend mixing a soil acidifier into container soils or using an acid-based potting blend to promote the deepest purple flower color. In gardens, test soil pH and amend in spring as needed to maintain acidity. Bigleaf hydrangeas grow best with morning sun and afternoon shade. Avoid hot, exposed sites. United States Plant Patent PP#28,940.
