Hydrangea General Information:

Hydrangea are superb in the border for summer and autumn color. This shade-tolerant shrub is perfect for under trees and in the shadows of buildings. Provides winter interest if flowers are left on. Great for indoor decorating as their flowers are easily dried. We have friends who make gorgeous wreaths with their blossoms. Great for small gardens or containers.

Hydrangea Plant Care:

Prefers moist, well-drained soil. Blooms on old and new wood. Can be pinched or pruned while young to build a full-bodied, well-branched plant. May benefit from winter mulch in northern areas. Easiest pruning is to simply remove any dead canes after the hydrangea sprouts in the spring. A slow-release fertilizer recommended for shrubs and trees may be applied once a year. Spread around the drip line of the branches, not the base. Lightly cover the fertilizer with soil to activate and water well.
