Welcome to Hydrangea Derby

Hydrangea Derby was set up in 2010 to assist Derby City Council to maintain and extend this already large collection of Hydrangea.  Over the last 8 years we’ve increased the number of plants to 835 and focused on paniculatas, fixed the steps and gates and made a lot of very good friends.  Click here for our Leaflet 2018.  It’s due to be upgraded soon.  The 2019 Open Day is on Sunday, 4 August.  More information to follow.  Private tours are from Monday 5 August to Friday 9 August:  morning, afternoon or evening.  Contact us via the contact page for more information.  We’re not very good bloggers but we will give you the important information on Facebook and Twitter!

You will find information about:

  • The Darley Park National Collection of Hydrangea paniculata
  • how to find us
  • how you can help
  • detailed descriptions of all the plants in the collection
  • future plans for the collection
  • events
