Planting Hydrangeas: Once you have prepared your soil, lay out the plants in your intended design. Be sure to keep in mind full mature size of the plants, ensuring that they will barely touch at full size. This will make your garden look full and allow for air to still circulate through the garden. Dig your planting hole slightly larger than the pot size, and place any fertilizer, organic material or nutrients needed to improve your soil mix in the hole before putting your hydrangea in place. If the roots are tightly packed, loosen them gently with your fingers before planting the hydrangea to encourage root growth and spread once in the ground. Make sure that the crown of the plant – where the base of the stems meets the soil – is even with the ground level. If the hydrangea is placed too high, it can easily dry out. If the crown is placed too low when planting, it can cause hydrangeas not to bloom and potentially rot. Refill the hole with soil and pack it firmly around the crown to create a water dam around the newly planted hydrangea. Fill the dam with water, let it drain and then refill it.
Endless Summer Hydrangea Pop Star Shrub 2 Gallon
Genetically compact and incredibly floriferous, Pop Star Hydrangea is a lacecap variety that is a standout in the landscape or decorative container. With strong bud hardiness and reliable rebloom, Pop Star is a blooming powerhouse. Its short stature makes this a strong border or short hedge plant that doesn’t need pruning to keep its size and is great for year-after-year color on your deck, patio, or porch. The dark green leaves against the blue or pink blooms give the classic hydrangea look, while the lacecap flowers add extra texture and interest to the garden.
BIG REBLOOMER- Pop Star is the quickest to rebloom in production with new buds appearing in 4 weeks after a
hard cutback, which is 2-4 weeks sooner than comparison plants.
COMPACT- Pop Star is genetically compact with short internodes and a tight, strong habit, holding its blooms at the canopy. This, plus its strong stems, prevents a ﬂoppy plant.
VERSATILE Thanks to its size, ﬂower power, and ease of use, Pop Star can be planted, thrive, and make a big impact in any outdoor space.
