Soil Grows well in most soils; avoid wet and poorly drained sites. Mulch is recommended in the landscape.

Pruning Blooms on new wood - cut back by about one-third its total height in early spring, just as the new growth begins to emerge on the stems. Smooth hydrangeas may be cut back harder, however, this prevents woody cells from developing, prohibiting the plant from achieving its maximum stem strength.

Uses Versatile and showy, smooth hydrangeas offer dozens of landscape applications: foundation plantings, perennial gardens, hedges, cut flower gardens, naturalizing, pollinator and wildlife gardens.

Growing Tips Easy care and reliable. Grows best in well-drained soils and a minimum of 6 hours of sun each day (afternoon shade in hot climates is a good idea). Flower color is not dependent on soil pH.
