#ProPlantTips For Care

Best in full sun and partial sun in cooler zones, but partial shade with an emphasis on afternoon shade is recommended in warmer climates. In cooler zones, the more sun you give Hydrangea, the more blooms you'll enjoy! Plant these flowering ornamentals in moist, well-drained, and slightly acidic soil.

Topdress with 3-4 inches of arborist mulch as they thrive when having that even moisture and protection. Hydrangea care can look overwhelming, but it's pretty easy! We have a few recommendations for you while taking care of your plant. Once established, water consistently as you would other plants and use an acid-loving flowering plant fertilizer. Blooming on old wood earlier and producing flowers later on new shoots from the base, prune Bigleaf Hydrangea after the flowering has occurred. This will encourage healthy and happy blooms later!

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade - Favoring Afternoon Shade
  • Water Consistently
  • Mulch Root System Well
  • Provide Well-Drained Enriched Soil
  • Prune After Flowering - Blooms on Old Wood
