How To Plant Azure Skies™ Bigleaf Hydrangea
Big Leaf Hydrangea grow best when they get full sun for part of the day and shade the balance of the day. Up north, where the summers are cooler, they like full sun for up to six hours each day. As you move south, the summer sun is more intense, so less full sun is desired. In Zone 8, consider two hours of full direct sun as ideal. Your Big Leaf Hydrangea will have pink flowers in an alkaline soil and blue flowers in acidic soil.
How To Water
Your Bigleaf Hydrangea should be watered regularly and deeply until plant has reaches establishment. Once the plant has matured, it will need average water.
How To Fertilize
