Hydrangeas can be very beautiful and impressive – and can be easy to grow, given the right space and conditions.
This shrub will grow large globes of flowers starting in spring, which will fill out in summer and even last into early fall.
Hardiness zones 3 to 7. Best planted in fall or early spring with lots of space to expand, against a fence or wall, for some afternoon shade. They like rich well-draining soil, and lots of root space. This plant is easy to propagate (by bending and burying a branch). Add mulch to keep roots moist and cool.
Shrubs grow to an average of 1 to 2 meters tall.
