Care Information: Easy to grow and care for. Will tolerate full sun and would like part shade in the afternoon- in warmer climates. Panicled Hydrangeas do not like wet feet, so be sure to plant in well-drained soil. Can be pruned back to 1/3 its size in spring. You can fertilize at that time as well. Acidity/Alkalinity levels do not affect bloom color. Can prune into topiary/tree form.
