Bobo Hydrangea Care Information
A cold-tolerant hydrangea, Bobo® can be planted in USDA zones 3-8. Take care to plant it in a more sheltered location and mulch well for winter if your site is in the northern end of the range. Choosing a spot with a bit of afternoon shade if you are in zone 7 or 8 will keep your panicle hydrangea happy.
Bobo®, like most hydrangeas, will grow in full or partial sun. Gardeners in more southern locations may find Bobo® enjoys morning sun more than harsh afternoon heat and rays. Try an area that receives dappled shade in the afternoon if your home is in zone 8.
Plant this panicle hydrangea in a well-drained, fertile loamy soil. Avoid heavy clay or poorly drained sites.
Add compost when planting and keep your new Bobo® well-watered for the first year. Once established, these hydrangeas are lightly tolerant of drought conditions and won’t need much maintenance.
