Beautiful Hydrangeas, but not easy to take care
  • At least 6 hours of sun with partial shade in the afternoon
  • Prun during fall or early spring
  • Protect from late spring freezes
  • Add some fertilizer in spring / early summer, let it rest during fall. Don't put too much, it will kill the hydrangeas.
  • Needs a lot of water, protect it from summer afternoon heat.
Endless Hydrangeas bloom?


  1. I agree they are not easy to take care of. But they are beautiful. I like the blue ones. I have one of them. Now the blooms are white but I'm hoping they'll turn blue. Will they?

  2. Ah, hydrangeas.... such lush flowerheads. One of the plants I cannot successfully grow in my new garden, unfortunately. Happy to find you on Blotanical!

  3. Hi, Blossom - The white flower will turn blue when it is fully bloomed. Ya, I agree blue color is much more prettier than the white one.

    Hello, Alice - Welcome to my blog, your Italian is so beautiful!

  4. I think hydrangeas are my absolute favorite shrub. They always remind me of my mother and home in Maine. Yours are so very lovely.

  5. Tina,

    My friend's mom ordered roses for her garden many years ago. Every time her roses bloom, she remembers that sweet gift from her mom. Flowers won't last, but they always bring back good memories.


  6. Thanks for adding Landscape Design to your list of favourite blogs! I guess I take for granted how spoilt we are here in South Africa, because Hydrangeas grow so easily!

    I think the colour of the flowers (pink or blue) depends on the acidity or alkalinity of the soil. Although they both start off white.

  7. I love the blue one, you are so lucky to have Hydrangeas grow easily in your garden
