    Maintenance Notes: 

    Prefers moist, well-drained soils. Soil pH will affect flower color. If aluminum is present in the soil, acidic soils will produce purple or blue flowers. Absence of aluminum or basic soil conditions will produce pink flowers. Pruning is seldom needed, but may be shaped immediately after early summer bloom. Apply a controlled-release fertilizer in spring.

    • Rave is definitely a Hydrangea to Rave about. Mine blooms all summer with a dozen big blooms in Royal Blue, growing next to all pink Hydrangeas. The Tag is still on year 2 so it is definitely Rave. Wish I could attach a photo. I currently have about 65 varieties of Hydrangeas and Rave is one of my consistently reliable bloomers in Full Sun.
