Uses Notes: 

Great landscape plant adds a dash of bright color. Good in groupings or masses, in a perennial or shrub borders, as a specimen, screen or hedge. Use in mixed containers, containers, and as a cut flower.

Maintenance Notes: 

Best in well-drained soil that has been amended with peat moss, leaf mold or compost. Flourishes by the ocean. Pruning is usually not needed, but may be pruned immediately after flowering. Prefers moist soils. May need winter protection in northern areas. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for the recommended rate of application. Flower color is affected by pH. For blue flowers, the soil must be more acidic and for pink flowers the soil must be more alkaline. Apply aluminum sulfate to the soil to encourage blue flowers.

Tired of floppy, weak stemmed hydrangeas, especially when they're in full bloom? This new and improved hybrid from Germany has tight sturdy stems and excellent mildew resistance. This maintenance free plant will require no pruning and that results in more flowers the next coming summer. Its intense fuchsia color will pop in your garden and fill your home with beautiful fresh or dried cut flowers. The flowers age quite nicely into fall as well.
