Product Details

What's so cool about the BloomStruck Hydrangea?  This hydrangea has the ability to change bloom colors to your liking.  If your looking for pink colored flower heads, you can adjust the ph of the soil so that its more alkaline.  If you're going for purple flower heads, then you can adjust the ph so that its more acidic.  It's really simple.  Hydrangeas are happy in acidic or alkaline soils so you can plant one in your yard and let the bloom colors be a surprise!

Look for a maximum growth of 3-4 feet high and 4-5 feet wide.  Flower heads begin to develop in early spring and start to really show off late spring all the way to fall.

The BloomStruck starts out with showy red-purple stems and dark green leaves.  It really stands out in your landscape even without the flower heads it produces.  What also makes this hydrangea so special is its hardiness.  The BloomStruck is resistant to powdery mildew, heat tolerant, and has extremely strong branches and stems which can hold up the colorful flower heads.

Plant your BloomStruck Hydrangea in a part shade area of the landscape.  Look for well drained but moist soil.  We recommend adding a bag of our special planting mix to get your hydrangea started.

How To Care for your new BloomStruck® Hydrangea

When planting your Bloomstruck Hydrangea be sure you have the right location and conditions for your new plants to thrive. Spring and Fall are ideal times to plant Hydrangeas.  Avoid planting hydrangeas in summer when temperatures are mid80s or higher.

The Bloomstruck Hydrangea requires full sun to part shade and prefers moist, well-drained, fertile soil.  In hot climates, hydrangeas will do best with some shade.  If you have alkaline soil and want a blue hydrangea, be sure to amend your soil.  To acidify your soil, amend with aluminum sulfate or elemental sulfur.  If you are seeking a pink color, add lime several times  per year.  Keep the soil moist, but not saturated, especially in summer and in the first year after planting.  Throughout its life Hydrangeas will do best with a deep watering once weekly during hot temperatures.  Mulching at about 3 inches deep is highly recommended for hydrangeas.  Mulching will cut back on watering needs and protect your plant in extreme temperatures.  Choose a slow release fertilizer for flowering plants.  Fertilize once in spring after the last chance of frost and again in early summer for best results.  You don’t need to prune hydrangeas, but pruning after they are done blooming can help encourage a bushier growth and renew an older plant.  

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants.  Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. You can treat mites, scale, whiteflies, and aphids naturally with neem oil or insecticidal soap.  For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin.  Fungal infection can be prevented by making sure the planting site has good drainage and by avoiding overhead watering.  Fungal infections can be treated with a fungicide.  Generally, treating fungus after infection isn't effective so if you have problems with other plants or in a prior year, treat preventatively in early spring.  

 

Planting Directions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 2 - 3 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.
