Uses Notes: 

Good in groupings or masses, perennial or shrub borders, as a specimen, and in winter gardens. The dried flowers are very distinctive in flower arrangements.

Maintenance Notes: 

Very adaptable to different soil conditions, but proliferates in rich, well-drained, moist soil. Adaptable to a range of pH; soil pH will not affect flower color. Prune in late winter or early spring, cutting the plant down to the ground. Blooms on new wood. If planted in full sun, sufficient moisture is needed. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for the recommended rate of application.

This hardy, strong growing hydrangea rewards gardeners with clouds of big, lace white blooms. The dome shaped flowers are 6 to 10 inches in size and seem to float about the plant. The flowers are held up by sturdy stems that don't droop, even after a heavy rain. This sturdy variety won't flop over like 'Annabelle' and so maintains a tidy appearance throughout the season. WHITE DOME is useful as a mass planting or incorporated into a woodland setting. It's a great alternative to ornamental grasses to add winter interest to a landscape. Largely trouble-free, it has few pests or diseases. It is a hardy hydrangea that blooms on new wood, so even if killed to the ground by extreme weather it will still produce summer flowers and blooms are not affected by pH. The blooms are extremely attractive both in the landscape and as a cut flower. White Dome's sturdy stems make it a durable choice for both fresh and dried arrangements.
