The stunning and unusual dark foliage of the Eclipse Hydrangea will stand out in any garden. Producing dark purple leaves, this Hydrangea macrophylla grows to around five feet tall and develops large cranberry-purple colored flowers. This cultivar demonstrates outstanding disease resistance, especially against powdery mildew and leaf spot. 

Suitable for growing in zones 5 to 9, the Eclipse Hydrangea is equally at home at the back of a border or in a large container. This hydrangea is considered low maintenance, especially with its excellent resistance to diseases. It naturally forms a pleasing rounded shape and is ideal for foundation planting or for creating a low informal hedge.

First Editions® Eclipse® Hydrangea Care

The Eclipse Hydrangea thrives when grown in partial sun, but can tolerate full sun in cooler climates. It favors fertile and free-draining soil with a pH of 4.5 to 6 and will benefit from an application of slow-release fertilizer in early summer. Frequent irrigation is needed until a good root system has developed and on an ongoing basis to keep the soil on the moist side. Mulching with organic matter will help prevent moisture loss and keep the weeds at bay.

Eclipse Hydrangea should be pruned in early spring. Simply prune back overgrowth to above a pair of buds and remove any dead branches. When grown in a container, more frequent watering will be needed than when grown directly in the ground. 

First Editions® Eclipse® Hydrangea Spacing

When mature, the Eclipse Hydrangea can reach a size of 3-5 feet all over. If planting in a group you can space this plant around 4 to 5 feet apart center to center.

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.
