Design Ideas Hydrangeas are a gorgeous foundation plant, large enough for solid color throughout the growing season, with a bonus of gorgeous flowers. Plant in problem acidic soils beneath canopies of shade trees or even smaller accent trees. Very bright flowers are attention-getters at focal points, and planting in groups intensifies this overall effect. Good for edging outdoor living spaces with cooling, rich green foliage and close up appreciation of huge flower trusses. A vital component of a florist's or crafter's landscape when massed to provide plentiful cutting material.
Flower Color Pink
Foliage Color Dark Green
Companion Plants Rhododendron (Rhododendron); Holly (Ilex); Hosta (Hosta); Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus); Sweetspire (Itea)
CARE
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 root system. Once established, water as needed to maintain evenly moist soil. Feed in early spring. Deadhead spent blooms; prune dead or weak stems as needed.
