About large-leaved hydrangea - more details
Large-leaved hydrangea is the most interesting member of the family, which can grow to the size of a small shrub and still have a very refined appearance. To do this, you just need to create the most favorable conditions for the growth and development of Saori.
France can be considered the birthplace of hydrangea. It was the French breeders who made every effort to create such a beautiful species of plants, which, with its appearance, conquered not only foreign inhabitants, but our domestic nature lovers.
The main differences between Miss Saori and other representatives of the species include the rather large size of the ovoid leaves of a rich green color. It is worth noting that the foliage has this color only in the spring and summer. With the arrival of autumn, it begins to acquire a red tint.
The exquisite large-leaved shrub blooms in rather large inflorescences, the diameter of which is approximately 30 cm. The main colors of the inflorescences are pink and white. A little less often you can find plants blooming in a gentle blue color.
What is attractive about the variety
Hydrangea Miss Saori is a very unusual variety, it is interesting for its sophistication. A distinctive feature is an interesting play of colors: large white matte flowers, placed on powerful beautiful stems, look very harmonious against the background of rich green foliage with a slight purple tint.
Interestingly, Miss Saori retains its color range regardless of the acidity of the soil in which it is planted. The decorative time is very long and lasts from June to September inclusive. The height of the shrub can reach one meter and therefore can become a very extraordinary decoration of any personal plot or greenhouse.
Hydrangea Miss Saori care
It is possible to grow a luxurious hydrangea that attracts attention and arouses admiration only if the process is approached correctly, i.e. certain knowledge of agricultural technology and care will need to be obtained. The first condition that needs to be met is the correct choice of location.
It is better to choose a place for planting in the shade, or where sunlight will fall on the plant only in a diffused form.
In principle, Miss Saori can also tolerate direct sunlight painlessly, but only if one condition is met: regular and high-quality watering.
The ideal soil for planting Miss Saori hydrangeas is slightly acidified. When disembarking, without fail, it is worth observing the distance between the bushes. It must be at least 1.5 meters. The plant is moisture-loving, so it should be watered regularly and with sufficient water.
If a sufficient amount of precipitation falls during the decorative period, the amount of watering of the flower can be reduced.
Feeding hydrangeas will not be superfluous. She will gladly accept all its types. It is better to apply fertilizers in early spring, when the plant is just beginning its active growth; then during the period of bud formation and towards the end of the summer period, so that the plant has enough strength to painlessly endure the winter period.
With regards to wintering: for the winter, the plant must be covered and high-quality mulching is performed, which will help to retain the required amount of moisture. If the flower bushes are still very small, you can simply cover them with dry earth. Larger plants are bent to the ground, a spanboard or lutrasil is used for cover.
Hydrangea Miss Saori winter hardiness
Representatives of winter-hardy varieties of hydrangea conquered gardeners in our regions at the end of the last century. Today the number of such varieties has reached twenty. It should be noted that each of these varieties differs from each other not only in the size and color of the inflorescences, but also in other characteristics.
For example, winter-hardy varieties can be used as a supplement to a seasonal rabatka. Or, for example, as the main material for creating an unusual design in the garden, planting exclusively remontant representatives of the variety.
The maximum subzero temperature that a hydrangea can easily survive can also fluctuate. North American breeders have developed varieties that can safely tolerate temperatures as low as -15oС.
Their European colleagues managed to achieve an even better result. They got varieties that can withstand frost around -20oС.
It should be noted that the specified temperature range is not a limit. There are several varieties that do well at lower temperatures. The most frost-resistant variety among hydrangeas is the Miss Saori variety.
It is quite possible to recommend it for growing to amateur gardeners living in geographical conditions with rather low winter temperatures.
