Unique Characteristics: Another great performing hydrangea that blooms on new wood, leaving less worry about winter freezing out your blooms. Blue Hydrangeas require acid soil. Aluminum is a component of all soils, but its availability to plants depends on the acidity of the soil. In acid soils, the roots can readily absorb aluminum. If your soil is on the alkaline side, you may need to add aluminum sulfate. Flower buds develop on old (mature) wood of the previous year and new wood, increasing your chances of a very colorful season. You may dry bloom heads for added interest indoors.
Pruning: Remove any winter damage wood. Prune after flowering may result in additional blooming for the season.
Additional Information: Developed by Penny MacHenry, founder of the American Hydrangea Society.

As delicious in appearance as their name sounds, large blue flowers set against glossy green leaves are the hallmarks of the Blueberry Parfait Hydrangea. Despite their yummy name, be aware that hydrangeas can be moderately toxic if eaten. At maturity, the Blueberry Hydrangea, also known by its botanical name of Hydrangea Macrophylla penny mac, will reach three to five feet in height. The bright blue blooms typically appear in mid- to late summer depending on climate. The Blueberry Hydrangea will grow best in an area of the garden that receives filtered or indirect sunlight via morning sun and afternoon shade. This gorgeous Blue Hydrangea serves well as a large focal point planting or as an informal hedge.

The Blueberry Parfait Hydrangea is best planted once the early spring frost subsides and before the temperatures rise. Ensure that the soil you are planting the blueberry hydrangea in has adequate acidity. The bright blue blooms of this Hydrangea may turn pink if the alkaline levels in the soil are too high. If you fear your soil isn't acidic enough, you can add a soil acidifier after testing the soil's pH levels. The blue blooms of the Blueberry Parfait Hydrangea only form on new growth and your plant will benefit from both spring and fall pruning. Cutting back dying blooms allows new growth to flourish.
