Description

Black Stem Hydrangea – Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Nigra’

‘Nigra’ is a lovely hydrangea with pastel blooms. While this alone would be a good reason for growing it, Nigra is admired mainly for its interesting black stems. Many hydrangeaphyles grow Nigra in their collection. Nigra is easy to grow, likes part shade (especially afternoon shade), and rich soil. In other words, it is a typical macrophylla (mophead) hydrangea.

An excellent Hydrangea for its rose to blue flower heads, but what makes this plant truly stand out is its interesting, blackish-purple stems. Superb shrub for accent, specimen, or border in full sun or semi-shade areas. No collector should be without.

Needs regular watering – weekly, or more often in extreme heat. Needs regular watering – weekly, or more often in extreme heat. Moderate grower to 4 to 6 feet high, equal width. Hardiness zones 5-9.
