The Double Down Hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla 'Double Down') is an exquisite deciduous shrub known for its profusion of impressive double blooms and appealing foliage. This stunning plant adds a touch of elegance and drama to gardens and landscapes, making it a favorite among horticulturists and garden enthusiasts alike.
The Double Down Hydrangea is a medium-sized shrub that typically grows to a height and width of 4-5 feet, making it an ideal choice for borders, hedges, or as a specimen plant in the garden. It flourishes in USDA hardiness zones 6 to 9 and prefers well-draining, consistently moist soil. This hydrangea variety thrives in part shade, requiring protection from harsh afternoon sunlight to prevent leaf scorch.
Featuring a dense, rounded growth habit and branching structure, the Double Down Hydrangea presents a visually appealing presence in the garden. Its adaptable size and striking appearance make it a versatile choice for a range of landscape applications, including mixed borders, foundation plantings, and as a focal point in the garden.
The most alluring feature of the Double Down Hydrangea is its large, showy flower clusters, which boast rich blue or pink hues depending on the soil's pH level. Acidic soil produces blue flowers, while alkaline soil results in pink blooms. The flowers appear from early summer through fall, offering a long-lasting and dynamic display of color.
Each flower cluster consists of numerous double florets, creating a full and luxurious appearance. The outer florets are larger and more vibrant, while the inner florets are smaller, providing depth and dimension to the floral display. The abundance of flowers makes the Double Down Hydrangea an eye-catching addition to any garden.
In addition to its stunning blooms, the Double Down 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.
