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 too if flowers are left on. Great for indoor decorating as their flowers are easily dried.

Hydrangea Plant Care:

Can be left untouched, but any desired pruning should be done before August to avoid damaging next year's flower buds. Blooms on old wood. Older specimens can be refreshed by removing 3-5 of the oldest stems every 3years or so.
