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:

No need to prune - has a nice natural shape. Can be cut to 6" in early spring. Cutting down to a base framework in early spring and ample feeding will yield extra large blooms.
