Hydrangeas

Several years ago I purchased a Hydrangea plant called Red 'n Pretty. This striking specimen is boldly branched and creates a mounding form. Aside from creating the correct soil conditions with acidifier this wonderful shrub will thrive with little maintenance.

Hydrangeas

The Red 'n Pretty Hydrangea attains a height of approximately four to six feet and spreads approximately three to four feet wide. Hydrangeas must be kept evenly moist during the summer months and it is relatively easy to determine whether or not they require water. The leaves turn upside down when they are in desperate need of water.

This superb shrub is excellent as an accent plant and will grow in full or partial sun. At the end of the season do not cut this shrub. You may use the flowers for indoor arrangements but leave the plant intact as new growth will appear the following year on some of the old wood.

Hydrangeas

In midsummer this wonderful addition to your garden will garner countless compliments. The leaves are interesting, the color is bold, the blooms are prolific and the overall effect is stunning. I highly recommend purchasing at least one of these magnificent shrubs.
