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'
Common Name: Bigleaf hydrangea, Mophead hydrangea, Florist's hydrangea, Hortensia
Zone: 5-9
Sun Exposure: Sun in cool areas; part shade in warm climates.
Height x Width: 2-3' tall and wide
Flower Color: White with purple or white with pink
Foliage Color: Green
Season of Interest: Summer
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: 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.

Unfortunately Wee Grumpy did not make it. He was placed in a pot and after about 3 weeks it died. So very sad. I was excited about seeing it bloom in our front yard.

Not what I ordered

The plant arrived without tag or label but it bloomed while still in the original planter. Not Wee Bit Grumpy, but a nice raspberry color. Probably will not order any more plants from Great Garden plants again.

Hello Larry!
I'm sorry to hear you're not happy with your new plant. It is quite possible that you received the correct plant even though you're seeing a raspberry color. Wee Bit Grumpy® only blooms purple in acidic soil. As we don't treat our hydrangeas in our greenhouse, they will not arrive or bloom purple unless you treat the soil in your container or garden. You can learn more about this in the 'how to grow' section on its plant page. If you're still concerned that you received the wrong plant don't hesitate to reach out to us by emailing us pictures to claims@greatgardenplants.com. Happy gardening!

Hi, German!
