General Hydrangea Information and Links

Origins - Hydrangeas naturally occur in North and South America, China, Japan, Himalayas, and the Philippines. The name Hydrangea comes from Hydra meaning water, and Agos meaning a vessel referring to a cup shaped seed head.

 

Plant SpacingPlant at least 1 metre apart, and better at 1.5 metres apart.

 

Soil RequirementsHydrangeas like a free draining organically rich loam. The soil should be loose and friable around a newly planted plant. Avoid sand and clay.

 

FertilizerQuality topsoil is naturally slightly acidic and no fertilizer should be required. To make flowers pinker add a small amount of lime to the soil surface. To make flowers go bluer add a small amount of aluminum sulphate to the soil surface. If fertilizer is used a small amount occasionally to the soil surface is preferred to a lot at once.

 

WateringHydrangeas do not need watering once established and are mostly drought tolerant. If watering is done after planting, water only occasionally as excessive watering may cause root damage.

 

WindHydrangeas are tolerant of windy conditions and tolerant of semi coastal environments.

 

PruningIt is not essential for Hydrangeas to be pruned. When it is done pruning consists of removing old flower stems and pruning stems back to 2 buds.

 

Pests and DiseasesHydrangeas might get a bit of leaf spot, especially in humid conditions. The solution if required is to spray occasionally with a mild fungicide, or wait until leaf drop in winter when most hydrangeas clean themselves.

 

Tub Plants and Cut FlowersHydrangeas can be used as a tub plant and as a cut flower.  Flowers form on previous seasons stems, and pruning may reduce new seasons flowers. Flower types are mopheads, lacecaps and pannicles.
