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.

Foliage Color Dark Green
Companion Plants Rhododendron (Rhododendron); Holly (Ilex); Hosta (Hosta); Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus); Sweetspire (Itea)
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.

Planting and Growing Your Seaside Serenade® Newport Hydrangea

Planting and growing a Seaside Serenade Newport hydrangea starts with finding the right location. This shrub will do best in full sun to partial shade and needs evenly moist and well-drained soil. While not entirely necessary, your Newport hydrangea will appreciate acidic soils.

These hydrangeas grow to be about 4 feet tall and 4 feet wide, so wherever you plant, make sure you give your hydrangea plenty of space. These plants tend to be a little leggy, too, with a clearance of about 1 foot from the ground.

To plant, dig a hole as deep as the root ball and twice as wide, carefully place the plant in, and backfill the hole with soil. Regular watering is crucial, especially during the first growing season, so your hydrangea establishes a deep, extensive root system. Once it's established, water your hydrangea as needed to maintain evenly moist soil. Mulching is also recommended around the plant's root zone in the summer and winter to help your hydrangea conserve soil moisture (and protect it in colder climates).

Pruning is minimal and generally only required to remove dead or weak branches. It's also recommended to deadhead spent blooms. This helps your hydrangea come back year after year with big, colorful flowers that can range from soft, whimsical blue to bright and vibrant pink.
