Hydrangea Trees





What are Hydrangea Trees?

Hydrangeas trees are traditional Hydrangeas that are either trained or grafted into tree form. These dwarf flowering trees stand out in the landscape with their huge colorful flowers and lovely green foliage and unique habit. Hydrangea Trees add elegance, curb appeal, and value to your home. These beautiful small trees are low maintenance, salt tolerant, and fast growing.

When Do You Prune Hydrangea Trees?

Determine whether your hydrangea blooms on old or new wood. Old wood hydrangea like Oakleaf (H. quercifolia) and Big Leaf (H. macrophylla) should be pruned once the flowers have browned out in late summer. New wood hydrangeas like smooth (H. arborescens) and panicle (H. paniculata) should be pruned when they are dormant in late winter or early spring. Most of our Hydrangea Tree specimens are Hydrangea paniculata or panicle hydrangeas, which bloom on new wood.

How to Plant Hydrangea Trees

Water your tree in the container before planting. Dig a hole about twice the width of the root ball and almost as deep as the root ball is tall. Place your tree level in the hole. This is especially important with Hydrangea Trees so step back and take a look before replacing the soil. The top of the root ball should be slightly higher than the existing soil line. Fill the soil back into the hole around the root ball. Water deeply until the water begins to pool. Apply 1 to 2 inches of mulch to help the soil retain moisture.

How Do You Care For Hydrangea Trees?

Most hydrangeas prefer at least some shade to be at their best, but there are varieties like panicle hydrangeas that tolerate full sun. Hydrangea Trees love a deep watering, especially when it is hot out. Feed your hydrangea tree in spring with a slow release fertilizer. Newly planted Hydrangea Trees should be watered daily for the first week and 2 to 3 times weekly for the first 2 to 3 months until they are established. Read more about Hydrangea Care.

When Do Hydrangea Trees Bloom?

Bloom time varies amongst different types and varieties of hydrangeas and your climate. The main bloom season is summer, but many hydrangeas flower well into fall. Newer reblooming varieties bloom in late spring all the way through fall. Panicle Hydrangea Trees bloom from summer through fall.
