Buy Hydrangea Runaway Bride® Snow White ('USHYD0405') (PBR) RHS Chelsea Flower Show Plant of the Year 2018 - garland hydrangea: Hydrangea Runaway Bride is RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year 2018

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained, moderately fertile, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Runaway Bride has only just been introduced, but it's already picking up the awards - and has been voted RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year 2018. It caught the judges eye because of its profusion of blooms, which unlike other hydrangeas, form along the length of the stems - hence its common name of garland hydrangea. The flowerheads themselves are white lacecaps, so create a light, airy feel, and as they age, they often take on an attractive pink tint.

  • Garden care: Hydrangeas do not like to dry out. In dry weather, soak the roots with a hose and the plant will usually recover. Remove faded flowerheads in spring after the danger of frosts, cutting back the flowered stems to a strong pair of buds. Take out misplaced or diseased shoots. Mulch young plants with a well-rotted manure or compost in spring. Once established, remove a quarter to a third of the shoots to the base of the plant.

Eventual height & spread

I took delivery of Hydrangea Runaway Bride in May. Order Number 5024491. It a splendid for of lush growth but not a flower in site. Please let me know how I can encourage flowering?

I'm sorry to hear your hydrangea has not flowered. Sometimes you may need to give you plants a while to settle in before they start to bloom, as they may focus their energies on producing a good root system rather than flowers. This can be frustrating, but in the long term it can be quite beneficial. Otherwise, you should just make sure the plant is kept well fed and watered, and gets lots of sun, and then there will no reason why it wont eventually go on to produce lots of flowers.

Helen

what do i do with long shoots on hydrangea runaway bride - thank you

captain derek

Hello, Keeping in mind that these plants have an eventual height of around 1.2 m, I would leave the new stems, as the plant will naturally be putting on lots of new growth at the moment.

Helen

Can i grow this in a large container please, if so would you recommend John Innes number 3. Many thanks

Old Girl

Yes, these will do very well in a relatively large container filled with John Innes No. 2 or N.3 - provided it is kept well fed and watered.
