Growing Mop Head Hydrangeas

These are tough shrubs that do well in large containers.

These hardy Hydrangeas like it cool and moist, so a bit of shade and shelter are preferable to an open sunny situation that tends to get dry in summer, because too much sun and wind tends to damage the foliage.

Rich, well drained soil that has been improved with plenty of compost will hold the moisture and nutrients that hydrangeas love.

Prune out older wood on mature plants in Autumn or late Winter to make way for new growth.

The soil pH can affect the availability of aluminium in the soil, which affects the colour of the flowers.
Acidic soil, which is high in available aluminium, turns flowers blue, and lime or alkaline conditions turn them pink (by making the aluminium unavailable).

Did You Know?

From a pollinating insect's point of view, hydrangeas are not satisfying: mop head flowers have no food for them at all, and lace cap flowers have a little pollen.
