Blooms on both old and new wood. Supposedly, the bloom color is not affected by soil pH, and each plant will bear a mixture of pink, lavender, and blue blossoms. Prune after blooming, generally July or August, to avoid pruning off next year's blooms on the old wood.

The tag states:
"If the plant is leggy when you purchased it, shear the plant back hard by 1/3 to 1/2 its original size. Once it puts on an inch or two of growth, pinch the branch tips to remove just the growing tip. This tip controls branching. Once it is removed the buds below it will turn into stems. Once these new branches grow an inch or two, pinch the tip out again. You can repeat this throughout the first growing season as you are tending your garden. This technique results in a well branched, full bodied plant that will have more flowers in subsequent years. The second season in the ground, repeat the pinching practice (or lightly shear) up until mid-August. Cease pruning and pinching to allow the flower buds to set."

Hydrangea macrophylla LA Dreamin® 'Lindsey Ann' (PP26249, 2015) was patented by John David Bakale Jr. (Allendale, MI). Per the patent, it was discovered in the spring of 1998 in a cultivated location in Allendale, Mich.  According to marketing hype, it produces shades of pink, blue and purple flowers without inputs of aluminum sulfate or other chemicals. This trait is not noted in the patent? Apparently the multi-colored display occurs only if your soil is not to acid or basic. Also, has a better display on mature plants. Time will tell, I ordered one this year (2018).
