Hydrangeas Demystified – June 26

Many people believe Hydrangeas are difficult to grow but they aren’t. Ella Maxwell from Hoerr Nursery helps Garry demystify Hydrangeas and where the best places to plant three different varieties are. One is an Annabel-type, which blooms reliably year after year; it used to only come in White but does so in Pink now. The big-leaf types (Macrofila) need to be planted in just morning-sun environments; these can change color between pink & blue (based on the aluminum ions in the soil). The Panicle-type is the full-sun type; these will bloom and last until Fall.
