Hydrangea serrata 'Cotton Candy'
- Common Names: Hydrangea 'Cotton Candy'
The Magical hydrangeas thrive best in warm locations with plenty of shade. Do not plant a hydrangea too close to a tree. The tree roots will dominate at the expense of nutrients for your hydrangea.
Magical hydrangeas do not like dry roots. Hydrangeas in pots – as well as during full growth during hot spells – the plant needs water regularly. When watering it, keep the flowers dry and test the water permeability of the soil.
The Magical hydrangea, which can grow 100-cm tall, blooms from May to November. During this period the flower changes colour – from a clear to a glorious autumn tint. A flower for all seasons!
There is really no need to trim the Magical hydrangeas. Just removing the spent flowers is sufficient. If the hydrangea is growing in a warm climate, you should remove the old flowers immediately after the flowering period. If it is in a cooler climate, you should trim the plant in the spring – just before the hydrangea flowers. Only remove the spent flowers and leave the new buds in place.
Besides lots of water, hydrangeas also require extra fertilisation. For this purpose you can use organic universal fertilisers. Add fertilisers two or three times during the flowering season. As a result, the hydrangea will grow into a healthy, evenly-growing plant with many flowers.
