Homeowner Growing & Maintenance

Hydrangea's are 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 a free fertilizer packet.

Interesting Notes

Hydrangeas produce beautiful pink or blue blooms depending on soil pH. Alkaline soils will produce pink blooms, acidic soils will result in blue blooms. To determine whether your soil is alkaline or acidic, ask your garden center professional or State Extension Agent how to obtain a soil test. If the pH is just right you may have both pink and blue flowers on the plant at the same time. Change from Pink to Blue: Add aluminum sulfate according to package directions, to lower the soil pH. Your soil will produce blue flowers at a pH level of about 5.2 - 5.5. Change from Blue to Pink: Add dolomitic lime according to package directions, to raise the soil pH. Your soil will produce pink flowers at a pH level of about 6.0 - 6.2.

FOREVER & EVER® RED SENSATION HYDRANGEA

Hydrangea macrophylla 'Forever Ever Red Sensation'
PP18197 Plant propagation prohibited

Buy Forever & Ever® Red Hydrangea online. New for 2006! A stunning red hydrangea that will bloom reliably in the north. This plant has brilliant red blooms and burgundy-red stems. Its mop-head flowers begin blooming red and then fade to shades of purple. If you live in a hot climate, it is not likely you will see a "true dark red" hydrangea. The heat does not allow the red to be red they will be pink to dark pink. This variety is red in color, but will not retain this color if soil conditions are not right.
