    One year mine were blue and the next year they were pink. What is it that you can add to the soil to determine the color?. I trimmed it down in the spring. I usually do it in the fall. I saw on t.v. where you need to water even though it has rained

    Kathy, here is a publication by the Georgia Extension on Hydrangeas that you might find helpful on understanding how to change the color of the big leaf Hydrangeas.

    Hydrangeas have been in my life always. We moved those hydrangeas from a farm I lived on for the first 8 years of my life. I do not know where mother got the 'mother' bush. She moved it from that farm to where I lived until I married the wrong man...

    MaryAnn, your Hydrangea from Ohio did well in the sun but would suffer in the south because it's hotter here. It's a location thing . Down here in Mississippi we have to have them in, at minimal partial shade. I had mine in the ground for 6 years before

    Displaying these gorgeous pictures just isn't fair to us Northerners. My hydrangeas are buried beneath a combination of dirt, leaves, leftover evergreen branches, and chicken wire to hold it all together and as of two days ago, 6 inches of snow! But come

    I just found one of my favorite tv hosts and my favorite flower on the same post! I really miss your shows Erica! Yours was my most favorite of all the garden shows. I have just moved to AZ so don't think I can grow hydrangeas in a pot, sun is just too

    Patty M, in the nursery trade, hydrangeas are known as WATER HOGS. They require longer irrigation cycles than other plants. Sometimes even multiple X during hot summer days. It takes almost 2 full growing seasons for a hydrangea to fully establish itself
