The Q&A Archives: Hydrangea plants

Question: We bought two Pink and Pretty plants and two Lady in red, three months ago.
Lady in Red are blooming, Pink and Pretty do not even have a trace of a flower. Beautiful foliage, but no flowers.
We fertilize and water. What do you suggest?

Answer: Charles,

Sometimes a particular plant may be slower to come into bloom. It could be due to how much they were cut back in the nursery or when they were cut back. Keep on providing adequate water and periodic fertilizing. While they like shade they do need light to bloom well. Make sure that the plants are not in too dense of a shade. Dappled sun or early to mid morning sun with bright afternoon shade are best.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
