Blaumeise is considered by many to be one of the best of the Lacecap Hydrangeas producing very large flower clusters that are surrounded by some of the most deeply colored and themselves very large, showy sterile florets. In acidic soils the flowers are a deep royal blue and in alkaline soils the flowers are a dark rosy red. The foliage is large and shiny and is held on stout sturdy stems. The only drawback for this amazing Hydrangea cultivar is that it has limited cold hardiness and is will probably be best grown in zones 8 and warmer. An eastern or partially shaded southern exposure might be optimum even then. Item# 10731.

The large, 3-4'' wide, blue to lavender, Hibiscus-like flowers are produced throughout the warmer months of the year to year-round under warm frost free conditions. The Blue Hibiscus, Alyogyne huegelii, is an upright to rounded, naturally evergreen, Australian native shrub that is heat and sunloving and is somewhat drought resistant once well-established. It is fairly adaptable to soil types and moisture as long as they are provided with excellent drainage, otherwise it tends to be fairly short-lived. Full sun is optimal and it can be enjoyed both as a container plant as well as making a nice specimen or informal hedge in the garden and landscape. It is sometimes trained as a tree standard to good effect. Plants tend to be somewhat open and if foliage becomes too sparse or the plants too larger they can be pruned back fairly hard and will put out vigorous new growth and some sources suggest that it flowers best after a good pruning.
