More Information

Description The perfect hydrangea for dramatic flower color, Wee Bit Grumpy® bigleaf hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla) boasts pink or deep purple-blue hues, depending on the soil. This hydrangea is compact, meaning no pruning is needed to keep this hydrangea looking tip-top! Its leathery dark green leaves resist wilting and help maintain this flowering shrub's good looks. Wee Bit Grumpy® is the perfect little hydrangea for landscaping and flower gardens. Details Botanical Name:  Hydrangea macrophylla 'Stragrum'

Foliage Color: Green
Season of Interest: Summer
Bloom time: Summer
Features: Space savers, Proven Winners, heat tolerant, container plants, best sellers, best for beginners
Uses: Flower gardens, landscaping, specimen, flowering hedge
How To Grow Soil: Bigleaf hydrangeas require well-drained but moist soil. A good layer of mulch is very helpful for minimizing drought stress and conserving moisture.
Light: Plants can take full sun (6+ hrs/day) in cooler areas, but afternoon shade is recommended in warm climates. If your plant frequently wilts in the afternoon even though it was recently watered, that may indicate the spot is too sunny for it.
Water: Average to abundant (as long as soil is well drained).
Spacing: min. 3' apart
Fertilizing: Fertilize in early spring, once the ground has thawed, with a granular rose fertilizer. Make an additional application in late spring/early summer if desired.
Winterizing: Do not cut plants back for winter! Doing so will cut off all of the flower buds for the following season. If plants show a lot of dieback in spring, consider moving them, as this indicates the spot may be too cold for the plant.
Maintenance & Pruning: Bloom on old wood, which means they have their flower buds for the following season all through winter, so they should not be cut back. It is best to avoid pruning bigleaf hydrangeas altogether. Any dead wood can be pruned out in early spring, once the new growth has begun to emerge and its clear where any winter damage occurred. However, hydrangeas should not be trimmed or pruned regularly. If plants do not flower reliably, move them to a more protected spot in your yard; early spring is an excellent time to do that.
Notes on flower color: The flowers of bigleaf hydrangeas can vary from pink to purple to blue, depending on soil chemistry. You must have both an acidic soil and the presence of aluminum (a naturally occurring soil element) in order for blue/purple color to develop. Get a soil test from your local Cooperative Extension before applying any color change treatment to be certain that it will be effective.

Little Beauty!

I planted this Wee Bit Grumpy in early spring - zone 7b. It gets dappled shade and some direct/hot sun here. It is on a drip line and it is doing BEAUTIFULLY. Blooming already, even though I got the quart size. Plant came perfectly wrapped and in great condition

I have ordered here A LOT and it is imperative that plants be unwrapped and watered and left outside a bit to acclimate. They're stressed from the packing/travel/delivery chaos. Every time I do that - my plants are 100% successful.
