Homeowner Growing Tips: Flower color will change depending on the pH of the soil. To get blue flowers the soil should be more acidic (we recommend mixing lots of Canadian peat moss into the soil before planting); flowers will be pink in more alkaline soils. This Hydrangea flowers on both new and old wood. The best time to prune is early spring as growth resumes, removing only dead stems and tips. After it blooms, tips may be deadheaded, but complete pruning before August so that the flower buds can form prior to winter.
