Akadama™ Hydrangea, or Hydrangea mac. Akadama™ is a medium-sized shrub with vivid, long-lasting, deep-pink globes that bloom in the summer, and contrast beautifully with its shiny, coarsely toothed, deep-green, foliage. Reaching to heights of 4 to 5 feet with a spread of 4 to 5 feet, the foliage of this season-long stunner turns to a dark burgundy color with the autumn weather. 

Native to Japan, the Akadama™ Hydrangea, bred by Bloomables®, is a compact, upright variety with a symmetrical, rounded habit. They make excellent, long-lasting cut flowers, and you can dry and preserve both the flowers and foliage for a winter bouquet. Akadama™ means “red ball” which is a perfect description of these mop-headed, heavy bloomers. 

Akadama™ Hydrangea Care

The versatile Akadama™ Hydrangea should be planted in areas with mild winters. It prefers partial sun with dappled shade, and should be watered deeply and regularly until established. Mature plants need average water. You should feed your hydrangeas every year with organic fertilizer. They prefer moist soil with excellent-drainage. If you would like to prune your hydrangeas for size control or shape, it is best to wait until after they bloom in late summer to early fall. 

You can control the color of pink or blue hydrangeas by adjusting the soil pH. For bluer colors, soil pH should be below 5.5. For brighter pinks and reds, alkaline solid with a pH of 7.0 or higher is ideal. If you choose to manipulate the color of your hydrangeas, it should be done in the spring before the plant blooms. Be prepared that your hydrangeas may go through several years where the colors are a diluted purple. To keep flowers blue, add aluminum sulfate to the soil. To keep them pink, add lime to the soil or apply phosphate. 

Akadama™ Hydrangea Spacing

The Akadama™ Hydrangea is a favorite of florists and can be incorporated in arrangements and bouquets in need of dimension and interest. They are gorgeous planted in shady borders or in containers. This hydrangea’s smaller size makes it perfect in small spaces and yards. Hydrangeas need adequate air flow, and should be planted at least 2 feet apart.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
