The Zorro Blue Hydrangea, Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Zorro Blue’, originating from Japan, is renowned for its striking deep blue mop head flowers.

Features ‘Zorro Blue’ is celebrated for its large, round, deep blue flower heads that bloom from early summer to fall. The intensity of the blue colour is influenced by the soil pH; in acidic soils, the flowers exhibit a more vibrant blue. It has a moderate growth rate and features large, lush green leaves.
