    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 and transplant into the ground in fall.

    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. 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. Add aluminum sulfate to the soil to encourage blue flower color.

    No pruning needed!

    Dwarf Cityline hydrangeas stay tight and compact without any pruning, making them a great choice for container gardens and foundation plantings. The clear pink flowers of Berlin are the largest blooms in the series. Easter-egg-colored blooms are long-lasting, changing to an attractive green with age. The glossy green leaves have a very high level of mildew resistance.
