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. Proven Winners® selections are trialed and tested to be colorful, long blooming, carefree and easy to grow.

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.
