Caring for Hydrangeas

Hydrangeas Are a Beautiful Addition to the Landscape

The wide range of bloom times; blossoms in blues, pinks, purples, or white; and their tolerance to a wide range of sun exposures make them very versatile.

Did you know?

For Endless Summer, Blushing Bride, Bits of Lace and Twist and Shout, if Aluminum Sulphate is added to the soil the blossoms of these hydrangeas will bloom blue.

Fun Fact:

Endless Summer, Blushing Bride, and Twist and Shout bloom off both old and new growths.

Pruning Hydrangeas

The time to prune is all dependent on the bloom time. Those that bloom in early spring with the big blue or pink blooms must only be pruned in the spring to remove winter dieback. Oakleaf Hydrangeas also perform best if given a spring pruning only. Annabelle Hydrangeas should be pruned in the fall.

For most other types of Hydrangeas, pruning can be done most times of the year. However, the best time for them to be pruned is just after their blooms have faded.
