This popular Hydrangea features large, mophead flowers that appear in mid summer. Their color will be either soft pink or blue-purple, depending on soil acidity (more acidic = blue flowers). This variety blooms on both new and old wood, so you are almost guaranteed blooms every year, regardless of your pruning method. For best blooming results however, minor pruning can be done in the fall, and dead wood can be removed in the spring after the new growth has emerged.
