How To Care for your new Endless Summer® Hydrangea

When planting your Endless Summer 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 Endless Summer 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.

You've made a very happy customer!
I couldn't imagine the 4 hydrangeas I ordered would look so full and healthy after being shipped in narrow boxes. What a surprise! They are so robust - really no evidence of trauma. Beautiful! I will definitely recommend The Planting Tree.

Nicely shipped in good condition. Hoping lots of Holly tone will change my Blue Endless summer from its pink arrival back to blue (or I'll be blue)

I liked the hydrangeas, other than the fact I got pink, when I wanted blue.

Response from ThePlantingTree.com
These flowers are pink, purple, or blue depending on the acidity of the soil. If you have acidic soil the flowers will be blue. You can amend your soil if it is basic or neutral to get the right pH to have blue flowers.

I was told to plant mine around pine trees ,is this true?
Teresa Y on May 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This will help with acidifying your soil and getting/maintaining blue flowers.
how large (tall) are the plants when delivered?
A shopper on Apr 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Around 24" not including pot. Very nice plants!
I read that it's good to plant bushes and trees in the fall, but I'm in Maine in a zone 4 (I believe) and I can't help but wonder if that's true this far north. Would it work to keep the hydrangea in its pot and leave it on the porch for the winter, then plant outdoors in the spring?
L Jean B on Nov 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You still can plant any time of the year as long as the ground is not frozen.
