BloomStruck Hydrangea Care
Hydrangea macrophylla Bloomstruck is suitable to grow in most of the US since they grow well in hardiness zones 4-9. They can tolerate hot weather and are cold-hardy, so as long as you provide them with enough water, you’ll find them to be pretty easy to care for!
BloomStruck bigleaf Hydrangeas thrive in partial shade. Filtered sun all day or morning sun and afternoon shade will be the best. They can tolerate full sun as long as you can keep the soil consistently moist, which will likely require once or twice daily depending on the temperature.
BloomStruck Hydrangeas have a little magic trick. Their color depends on the pH value of the soil!
This Hydrangea needs moist soil. The more sun it receives, the more water it requires. A Hydrangea kept in partial shade won’t need as much water as one exposed to six hours of sunlight, so this is something to keep in mind when planning your garden.
Hydrangeas need plenty of water, but they don’t like standing water, so the soil needs to be well-draining to prevent puddles from forming. They also need nutrient-rich soil and will benefit from a yearly application of slow-release fertilizer.
BloomStruck Hydrangeas will change color based on the soil’s pH value of the soil! Acidic soil will make Hydrangeas turn blue and alkaline soil will make them turn pink. Keep the soil neutral if you want purple blooms.
Bloomstruck Hydrangea Size
This Hydrangea grows to be 3-4 feet tall and 4-5 feet wide. It typically stays round on its own, but it may occasionally stray from forming a sphere.
