|Design Ideas||Compact hydrangeas are perfect for high profile front yard foundation planting to add summer color to shaded exposures. Plant in problem acidic soils beneath canopies of great old shade or street trees and around groves of evergreens. An elegant beauty in mixed borders and behind larger perennials along fences or walls. Bright flowers call attention to an entry or focal point. Particularly appealing at outdoor living spaces under filtered shade arbors, or plant in narrow side yards to bring flowers for viewing at window level. A vital component of a florist's or crafter's garden when massed to provide plentiful cutting materials.|
|Companion Plants||Peony (Paeonia); Azalea (Azalea); Hosta (Hosta); Daylily (Hemerocallis); Coral Bells (Heuchera)|
|Care||Provide enriched, well-drained soil that is moist but not soggy. Apply mulch to conserve moisture and protect in harsh winters. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish extensive root system. Once established, water as needed to maintain evenly moist soil. Feed in early spring. Blooms on old wood; prune after flowering.|
