Hydrangea macrophylla Bodensee

Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Bodensee’, commonly known as Bigleaf Hydrangea ‘Bodensee’, is a charming deciduous shrub prized for its stunning, large mophead flowers. This compact variety typically reaches a height and spread of about 90cm – 120cm, making it ideal for smaller gardens, borders, or containers.

‘Bodensee’ blooms profusely during the summer months, producing striking clusters of deep pink to violet-blue flowers, depending on the soil pH. Acidic soils tend to produce blue flowers, while alkaline soils yield pink blooms. The foliage is a rich, glossy green, providing an attractive backdrop to the colourful blossoms.

This hydrangea prefers moist, well-draining soil and partial shade to protect it from the intense afternoon sun. Regular watering is essential, especially during hot and dry periods. Pruning should be done in late winter or early spring to encourage vigorous growth and abundant flowering.

Whether used as a focal point in a garden bed, a border plant, or a potted accent on a patio, Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Bodensee’ adds a delightful splash of colour and elegance to any landscape.

Hydrangeas give their best pink flowers when grown in soil with a neutral to alkaline pH. Therefore, if you want to make sure that your hydrangeas flowers stay pink (and don’t turn mauve or blue), you will need to make sure that the soil pH does not slip below 6. The easiest way to do this (if necessary) is to apply an annual sprinkling of lime.
