SKU: AM017968
per Plant - 3.5" Pot
No longer available this season.
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)

Bloom Time


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.
