This hydrangea blooms on both old and new wood. Pruning is generally not needed, but it may be trimmed lightly after the first flowering. Best in moist, well-drained soils. Supplemental moisture may be needed in very hot or dry conditions. Fertilize in spring with a controlled release fertilizer. Add aluminum sulfate to the soil to encourage blue flower color.

  • This is a very hardy hygrandea which survived fall pruned to the ground in it's first year by a helpful husband. Large leaves are verdant, lush green. Pink flowers which will rebloom from large flower heads; these do not have a typical full, fluffy hydrangea flower cap, just sprinkles of blooms on the heads all summer into fall.

    Satisfactory Average performance, met expectations but not outstanding.
