Planting & Care

1. Planting: Choose a location with morning sun and afternoon shade. Avoid planting your hydrangeas in a heavily shaded spot. Soil content is also important for hydrangeas because it should drain well yet also maintain sufficient moisture. 

When you're ready to plant, dig the planting hole 2 feet wider than the root ball and to a depth of the tip of the root ball. Set the hydrangea in the hole, making sure it's not planted too deeply. Finally, water to settle the roots.

2. Watering: Give your hydrangea an inch of water each week. This includes any rainfall. If you're not sure when and how much to water, simply check the surrounding soil about 2 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it's time to water until it's moist.

3. Fertilizing: Fertilize your hydrangeas once in the summer prior to August. Apply a good time-release fertilizer at this time, only one time during the year. Discontinue fertilizing if the plant appears wilted or unhealthy.

4. Pruning: Prune in the spring to remove dead tips from winter. You can also prune back in the fall or early spring for shaping without worry - it'll grow and bloom again!

A zebra for your yard

I noticed that Fast Growing Trees is now offering the Onyx Zebra Hydrangea. I have had two in my yard for years. Lovely plant, sturdy black stems with large white flower heads. Does not droop from the weight of the flowers. This plant is not deer resistant so it should be netted when small to deter the deer from nibbling. Deer don't seem to nibble my adult bushes. I would recommend this plant to anyone looking an elegant addition to the garden.
