Hydrangea Libelle has large, strong white flower heads. The dark green leaves are the perfect backdrop to the ice white blooms that bring a softness to any outside space. The smallest of the Soto Hydrangea edit, they look beautiful planted along a path or in a pot.
Trim back the Hydrangea heads in early spring. This protects the stems throughout the winter and encourages strong new flower blooms for the summer season. See our Masterclass series to learn more.
How to care for Hydrangea Libelle
Libelle is happiest in a partial spot but can perform well in sun, if its soil is kept moist.
After two years, prune stems back to a third to keep a bushy shape.
Hydrangeas likes to be moist but not soggy.
When planting your Hydrangea Libelle use good quality, peat free compost. Use a liquid feed throughout the summer to promote strong flower heads.
