hydrangea Care

Hello world :)


I'm in the process of buying the perfect house with three huge hydrangeas in the back yard. They are one of my favorite flowers, but I have no idea how to care for them over the cooler months and even the warmer ones.


Any help would be lovely! 

Re: hydrangea Care

  • I have an Endless Summer hydrangea that I bought two seasons ago that is doing wonderfully! I finally found the perfect spot for it (in a nook that gets some morning sun and then afternoon shade). To me, hydrangeas are easy to care for - just keep them watered and out of a lot of sun.

    Over the fall/winter, they will lose their leaves, but you don't need to do anything to them. They'll grow new leaves in the spring.

    Here's a website that will get you started:

    This website will tell you about pruning and other basic care. Happy gardening!

  • I put Hydra Blue down in the fall so they will be blue the following year, not pink.
  • Thanks you, I was wondering what the chemical to change their color was called!
  • Thank you very much for all of the information and the website! I feel a lot more confidant in my ability to care for them too.
