Growing and Maintenance Tips

Hydrangea serrata prefers moist, well-drained soils. Soil will affect bloom colour. In acidic soils with good aluminum availability the flowers will be light blue. They will turn lavender-pink in more basic soils. Pruning is generally not needed, but the plant may be shaped immediately after the first bloom of the season. In our garden serrata hydrangeas grow well in a site protected from cold winter winds and  in partial shade.
