Plant your hydrangea in a place where it will get partial shade. In your area it will grow and bloom periodically all year. You will need to do some pruning after each blooming period. Hydrangeas need a moist, well-drained fertile soil. Fertilize in early spring, late spring, mid-summer and early winter using about 2 or 3 tablespoons of 6-6-6 for a 3 foot plant. You can plant or transplant in the spring or fall when temperatures are coolest.

Best wishes with your hydrangea!
