How to Grow and Care for Your Hydrangea Plant
February 24, 1999
We moved into our home 7 years ago and inherited a large hydrangea plant.
Each year it grows taller and bushier and looks very healthy. (It is now about 5 ft.)
The problem is it has never bloomed (well it did get one flower - a bluish one that turned white - about 2 years ago)
It is located in a bed by our deck - it gets afternoon sun - sometimes very hot sun and this makes it wilt but it bounces back after a good drink.
The soil is acid. We live in Canada in the Kootenays, warm summers, lots of snow in winter.
I really want this plant to bloom the blue flowers I can imagine, but it just grows leaves. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. THANKS.
Growing Requirements
Hydrangea macrophylla is hardy to zone 8
Hydrangeas need an abundance of water (hydrangea means water tub in Greek) , partial to full sun,and very rich soil.
Spent Hydrangea flowers should be removed as soon as possible to allow the plant to direct it's strength to growing and producing new buds rather than seeds.
If you didn't add compost to your hole when planting your Hydrangea, you might consider replanting, because they thrive in rich soil.

    zSB(3,3) To complicate the issue, different types of hydrangeas need pruning at different times. You will have to know what type your plant is. Hopefully you saved the label. If not, an educated guess can be made by looking at its foliage and flowers.
    Pruning Instructions by Type of Hydrangea
    Bigleaf, Mophead or Florist Hydrangea Hydrangea macrophylla is sometimes easy to recognize because it is the one whose flower color changes with the soil pH: blue in acid soil, pink in alkaline. There are a few varieties that simply stay white, making it much harder to categorize from the flowers. The leaves are coarsely serrated and glossy, dark green. H. macrophylla Bigleaf type hydrangea set their flower buds at the ends of the upright or lateral branches, during late summer to early fall. Pruning Bigleaf hydrangea in the spring or even late fall, after the buds have been set, will remove the flower buds and any chance of getting flowers that season.

    A True Blue Hydrangea will Brighten any Corner. I would never have thought of putting a blue hydrangea in a dark corner of a shade garden until I saw it on a garden tour. Blue has a cool quality that blends well in a shade garden. The cool sensibility combines with the light reflecting quality of brilliant blue and makes a stunning statement. Plus, the sheer size of hydrangeas makes a big impact. Be sure you choose a hydrangea that flowers blue in any soil, not a Bigleaf hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla) that changes color based on the soil pH . Luckily there are lots of new blue varieties suitable for most hardiness zones of Gallery Index: Light in the Shade Prev Next Shade Gardening Planning for Color and Interest in Shade Top Plants for Shade Gardens Gardens Made in the Shade Designing a Shade Garden A White Shade Garden Design Special Plants for Shade Roses for Partial Shade Using Ornamental Grasses in Shade

        Jewel Of Summer
        Hydrangeas Gardening Australia Magazine, December 2007 Hydrangea is the spectacular flowering star of the summer and autumn garden, and its able to withstand dry periods surprisingly well. PETER CUNDALL gives us the lowdown on the many varieties of this top shrub, with tips for simple propagation methods and how to rejuvenate tired plants. Most gardeners equate old-fashioned hydrangeas with regular watering. And they do need a good drink on a hot day, especially when you see their leaves limp and their flowers drooping. However, the current drought has shown us how extraordinarily hardy,
        and to some extent drought resistant, certain hydrangeas can be.
        All hydrangeas do well in cool and temperate Australia, especially in districts with rainy periods from late winter to mid spring. However, they
        are also worth trying in other climates. Ive seen one or two growing with mixed success as far north as Cairns.
        Interestingly, hydrangeas also seem to grow to perfection in coastal areas and can even withstand a few salt-laden sea breezes. They are not particular about soil conditions and seem to grow just as well in heavy

    RHS advice on the various ways of pruning and cutting back hydrangeas this spring.
    By RHS Advisory Team 7:00AM GMT 25 Mar 2010 Comments The risk of hard frost has diminished in the garden so it should now be safe to prune hydrangeas. On established mopheads and lacecaps ( Hydrangea macrophylla ) remove one or two of the oldest stems close to the base of the plants to encourage the production of newer, more floriferous growth. Remove dead flower heads and frost-damaged tips, cutting back to the first strong, healthy pair of buds lower down the stem. Treat Hydrangea serrata in the same way. Related Articles Renovate neglected plants by pruning all the stems to the base. The flowering will be delayed until next year.

    Q. I love Hydrangeas, but I live on the West coast of Florida, near the Tampa area. Can you tell me if the conditions here are all right for them to grow? Also how about Lilacs...? Appreciate any help.
    A. Hydrangeas are well-suited for parts of Florida. They like moist tropical zones and many originate from South America. But, if growing in a hot location, they must be shaded, so that they are cool, and moist. The soil must be rich in humus, too, and well-drained. Do not allow to sit in the hot, dry sun, or they will scorch.
    Pruning is best done right after flowering, with vegetative cuttings used for propagation. Watch for powdery mildew, aphids, red spider mite and scale.
    If you want your hydrangea flowers to be more blue, incorporate enough ammonium sulfate into the soil to reach a pH of 5.0. And if you would like a pink color, add lime to the soil to raise the pH above 7.0.
    Unfortunately, I cannot recommend lilacs to you. They need the cold winter temperatures to bloom properly [at least two good frosts], so you would be wasting your time, since if you did get any flowers, they would be sporadic at best.

    Womanhood Exploring Womanhood Heart of the Home Gardening How to Grow Hydrangeas
    by Charlotte Harris
    Whether you call them Hydrangea Macrophylla, House Hydrangea, French Hydrangea, or Mopheads, growing Hydrangeas in the home garden can be an enjoyable experience. They are lovely, whether used as single plants or in mass, such as in a hedge, or border. Growing Conditions: Hydrangeas grow best in partial shade to full sun. They prefer morning sun and afternoon shade, especially in hot areas. Hydrangeas need a lot of water. In fact the word "Hydrangea" comes from the Greek for "water tub"! They grow best in rich soil, so dig in a lot of compost, and other organic matter, when you plant them, and mulch well. Fertilization: Fertilize liberally in the spring, in May in the South, and again in August. Wait until June to fertilize in northern areas. Use a good balanced, slow-release, fertilizer and apply 1/4 cup around the base of a very small plant, and 1-2 cups around a very large plant. Spread out to drip line, but don't get it next to the trunk. Mulch with homemade compost to cover roots. Never fertilize a plant that looks sick or wilted, it will just stress it more. Propagation: You can propagate from softwood cuttings in June. Take a 6"-8" tip cutting, strip off the bottom leaves, dip end in rooting hormone, then stick about one inch deep in sterile moist sand, vermiculite or sphagnum moss. Create a mini green house over plants with plastic and place in bright light, not full sun, until roots form. Or, you can just root them in water. Again, place in bright light away from full sun until the roots form.

    HYDRANGEACOLOR
    The color of some hydrangea can be changed by modifying the soil pH. Hortensia hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla) will turn blue if the soil is on the acid side. Fertilize yearly with an acid fertilizer according to direction; modify the soil when planting with two (2) pounds of sulfur and peat moss. A pH between 4.5 and 5.5 is desirable. To turn flower pink to light red, the soil should be neutral to alkaline. Use ground limestone ONLY around the plant if the color isn't pink. Pink colors occur between 6.5 and 7.5. At pH levels higher than 7.5, chlorotic leaves and poor growth results. Please read the Hydrangeas, especially those that bloom early in summer, should be pruned in early spring. They will thus have the full season in which to develop flowering wood. The early blooming kinds produce most profusely when cut within 4" to 6" of the ground, the puny shoots being removed entirely.
