The Dear Dolores Hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla 'Dear Dolores') is a versatile and enchanting deciduous shrub that boasts large, vibrant flower clusters and lush foliage. Beloved by gardeners for its stunning floral display and adaptability, this hydrangea variety adds color, texture, and charm to various garden settings.
The Dear Dolores Hydrangea is a moderately sized shrub, typically growing to a height and width of 4-6 feet. It flourishes in USDA hardiness zones 5 to 9 and prefers well-draining, consistently moist soil. This hydrangea variety thrives in part shade, ideally with morning sun and afternoon protection from harsh sunlight to prevent leaf scorch.
Featuring a dense, rounded growth habit, the Dear Dolores Hydrangea makes an ideal choice for borders, hedges, or as a specimen plant in the garden. Its adaptable size and attractive appearance allow it to fit seamlessly into various landscape applications, including mixed borders, foundation plantings, and as an accent plant in the garden.
One of the most captivating features of the Dear Dolores Hydrangea is its large, showy flower clusters. The blooms are a rich blue or pink hue, depending on the soil's pH level. Acidic soil produces blue flowers, while alkaline soil results in pink blooms. The flowers emerge from late spring through summer, offering a spectacular and long-lasting display of color.
Each flower cluster consists of numerous florets, creating a full and luxurious appearance. The abundance of blooms makes the Dear Dolores Hydrangea an eye-catching addition to any garden, and their long-lasting nature makes them ideal for use in cut flower arrangements.
In addition to its stunning blooms, the Dear Dolores Hydrangea features attractive, deep green foliage that provides a contrasting backdrop for the colorful flowers. The leaves are large, ovate, and serrated, with a slightly glossy appearance. The foliage remains lush and healthy throughout the growing season, contributing texture and visual interest to the garden even when the plant is not in bloom.
