Hydrangea are one of the most common town garden shrubs and if the conditions are to their liking they can be relied on to produce a fine summer show year after year. The Hydrangea most commonly seen is the 'mop head' bush and these vary in colour from white to red via shades of pink and blue.
Their resilience has led them to be neglected until they grow old and woody, or too large for the surroundings. Take a little care of these plants during the early spring months and all they will require for the summer is water. During hot dry spells in summer, it is vital to give these plants plenty of water. If they are allowed to dry out while blooming, the flower heads will wilt and scorch, never to recover. Remember, those blooms will remain on the plant throughout the summer so it pays to look after them.
