Planting & Care

1. Planting: Choose a location with morning sun and afternoon shade. If you live in zones 6 or lower, the more sun the better. Avoid planting your hydrangeas in a heavily shaded spot. Give your Hydrangeas plenty of room to grow.

Soil content is also important for Hydrangeas because it should drain well yet also maintain sufficient moisture. Also, the acidity levels of the soil will have a direct impact on the color of your flowers. For blue flowers, keep pH below 5.5. For pink or red flowers neutralize soil to pH 7.0 or higher.

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 is not planted too deeply. Finally, water to settle the roots.

2. Watering: This heavy drinker likes to be watered regularly to extend the life of the bloom and deep color of foliage. Water at least once per week to maintain evenly moist soil. Best if watered directly on the soil at the base of the plant. If a sprinkler is used, it is best to be done in the early morning to avoid sun damage to flowers and foliage. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to help establish an extensive root system. Mulch can be added to help maintain moisture. 

3. Fertilizing: Fertilize your shrub 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 as needed to control shape after bloom. Also, remove any dead, damaged, or spindly wood.

How to Plant Hydrangea Shrubs

Choose a location with morning sun and afternoon shade. If you live in zones 6 or lower, the more sun the better. Avoid planting your hydrangeas in a heavily shaded spot. Give your Hydrangeas plenty of room to grow.

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 is not planted too deeply. Finally, water to settle the roots.

How to Change the Color of Hydrangeas

Soil content is important for Hydrangeas because it should drain well yet also maintain sufficient moisture. Also, the acidity levels of the soil will have a direct impact on the color of your flowers. For deep blue flowers, keep pH below 5.5. For pink or red flowers neutralize soil to pH 7.0 or higher. 

Add lime to raise soil pH if you want to grow pink flowers. If you want blue flowers, add sulfur to lower the soil's pH.
