Product Information

Make a statement in your garden this year with this eye-catching and rarely available, new variety of hydrangea. Resplendent in spring with rich, velvety, golden foliage that is edged in orange, 'Goldrush' is truly a sight not to be missed, and breath-taking when it has darker foliage as a backdrop, really lighting up the spring garden.

An award-winning hydrangea, 'Goldrush' was shortlisted in the 2018 RHS Plant of the year competition and was also given a Bronze Medal at Holland's Plantarium 2018 awards so its officially recognised as something really special!

As the season progresses, the leaves of this lovely hydrangea steadily tone down so that by the time the large lace cap blooms emerge, the leaves are green. The flowers themselves are a subtle, pastel blue-violet and surrounded by a ring of large white bracts which contrast spectacularly with the foliage.

But the show doesnít end there - the leaves turn fiery orange again in the autumn before falling to reveal its attractive peeling bark. This really is a plant with year-round interest, that can be grown in the garden border as well as in pots and containers where it brings its vibrancy to decks, patios and balconies.

Being a hydrangea, itís simple to grow, needing no complicated maintenance. Reaching 2.5m (8ft) in height and spread, 'Gold Rush' responds to a hard spring pruning and grows well in sun or partial shade, although it does appreciate some shelter to protect the emerging spring leaves from drying winds.

Top Tips

Hydrangeas do not like to dry out. In dry weather, soak the roots with a hose and the plant will usually recover, and in any case, water regularly until plants are fully established.

Pot-grown shrubs can be planted at any time of the year as long as the soil is not waterlogged or frozen. If in doubt, err towards spring but remember to keep pots well-watered so that the soil does not dry out.

Care Information

  • Plant Goldrush in the sun in a moist but well-drained soil. Can be pruned in spring. Hardy to -12 įC.
  • Leave the faded hydrangea flower heads in place until the new buds swell in spring to protect the delicate buds from frost damage. when they can be removed - cutting back the flowered stems to a strong pair of buds.
  • Remove any branches that are damaged or dead as well as any that are misplaced.
  • After pruning hydrangeas, apply a mulch of well-rotted manure or compost around the base of the plant.
  • Once established, remove a quarter to a third of the shoots to the base of the plant to renovate it and encourage new growth.

To Plant

  • Shrub roots generally tend to spread out rather than down, so dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting, and mix some well rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill one the shrub is in place.
  • We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain then remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot and refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc
