The Hydrangea paniculata 'Kyushu' is a deciduous shrub renowned for its attractive and long-lasting blooms. Originating from Japan, this cultivar is particularly noted for its vigorous growth and ability to thrive in a variety of garden settings.

Reaching up to 2.5-3 metres in height and spread, 'Kyushu' forms a substantial, upright bush with dark green, lance-shaped leaves. The foliage provides a lush backdrop for the spectacular flowers that appear from mid-summer to autumn. The blooms are arranged in large, conical panicles, which can reach up to 30 centimetres in length. Initially, the flowers are a pristine white, maturing to a soft pink as the season progresses. This colour transition adds an evolving visual interest to the garden.

'Kyushu' is highly regarded for its sturdy stems, which hold the flower heads upright, even after heavy rain. This characteristic makes it a reliable choice for providing structure and height in borders or as a standout specimen plant. The shrub is also attractive to pollinators, such as bees and butterflies, making it an excellent choice for wildlife-friendly gardens.

In terms of care, Hydrangea paniculata 'Kyushu' is relatively low maintenance. It prefers a position in full sun to partial shade and thrives in well-drained, fertile soil. Regular watering is important, especially during dry spells, to ensure the plant remains healthy and vigorous. Pruning should be carried out in late winter or early spring to maintain its shape and encourage new growth. This involves cutting back the previous year's growth to a pair of healthy buds.

Overall, Hydrangea paniculata 'Kyushu' is a versatile and beautiful addition to any garden, offering a prolonged season of interest with its striking floral displays and robust growth habit. Its ease of care and attraction to pollinators further enhance its appeal.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
