Hydrangea - Big Leaf Cityline® 'Vienna' - 3 Gal.


Hydrangea macrophylla CITYLINE® 'Vienna'

The smallest of the Cityline® series, this little flowering machine refuses to take a back seat to its larger relatives when it comes to the flowering department. In fact, with the size of its pink mophead flowers, featuring a dab of white in the throats of the individual florets, and their incredible numbers, you might wonder if there is a plant at all under that mound of flowers in the landscape! Showy to a fault, this plant will become the feature of any tight space in the landscape or will enliven any partial shade spot when grouped together in bunches to the point that you might find it hard to pay attention to any other place in your yard!

Growing Tips

Best in well-drained soil that has been amended with peat moss, leaf mold or compost. Flourishes by the ocean. Pruning is usually not needed, but may be pruned immediately after flowering. Prefers moist soils. May need winter protection in northern areas. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for the recommended rate of application. Flower color is affected by pH. For blue flowers, the soil must be more acidic and for pink flowers the soil must be more alkaline. Add aluminum sulfate to the soil to encourage blue flower color.
