Homeowner Growing & Maintenance

Hydrangea is easy to grow and adapts to most conditions. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer. To give your plant the best start possible, we include free fertilizer with every order.

Interesting Notes

Blooms will be blue colored in acid type soils and pink in alkaline soils. Change the color by simply adding Aluminum sulfide to the soil.
