Big Leaf Hydrangea
- Hydrangea is a genus of about 100 species of flowering plants native to southern and eastern Asia (from Japan to China, the Himalaya and Indonesia) and North and South America.
- Hydrangeas produce flowers from early spring to late autumn.
- The flowers of Hydrangea are carried in bunches, at the ends of the stems.
- Each individual Hydrangea flower is relatively small.
- However, the display of color is enhanced by a ring of modified bracts around each flower.
- In most species of Hydrangea the flowers are white, but in some species, can be blue, red, pink, or purple.
- In Hydrangea species the exact color often depends upon the acidity or alkalinity of the soil.
- Most hydrangeas thrive in rich, porous, somewhat moist soils.
- Add compost to enrich poor soil.
- Acidic soils produce blue flowers, neutral soils produce pale cream petals, and alkaline soils result in pink or purple.
- Hydrangeas do especially well when fertilizers are effectively used in spring or early summer.
- Use a granular, slow-release fertilizer with a high percentage of phosphorus (the middle number in the NPK ratio).
- Phosphorus is the element that encourages bloom production.
- They prefer full sun in the morning, with some afternoon shade; however, many will grow and bloom in partial shade.
- Deeply water 3 times a week to encourage root growth.
- Bigleaf and smooth hydrangeas require more water, but all varieties benefit from consistent moisture.
- Use a soaker hose to water deeply and keep moisture off the flowers and leaves.
- Watering in the morning will help prevent hydrangeas from wilting during hot days.
