It is hard to imagine a summer without this beauty in our landscape. The blooms are end to end, a creamy white that will gracefully age to a soft pink as we get closer to autumn. Even the strong west winds don't ever phase this flowering shrub! A true favorite for many!
The Proven Winners ColorChoice® Bobo® Hydrangea is a compact panicle hydrangea loaded with beautiful white flowers! A great attribute for this plant is that you can grow it up to zone 3! These dwarf hydrangeas get absolutely covered in white blooms each summer, that turn pink later on in the season. The stems on this plant are also very strong, providing great upright support for the large blooms.
Bobo Hydrangea Care
The Bobo hydrangea grows best in loamy soil, but is widely adaptable to many different types of soil. This shrub will bloom regardless of soil, pruning, or pH levels. Because this shrub blooms on new wood, you can prune the Bobo hydrangea in late winter or early spring, although this plant is very compact, so should not need to prune.
Fertilize the Bobo hydrangea in early spring with slow release fertilizer designed for trees and bushes.
Bobo Hydrangea Spacing
Plant these small bushes 3 to 4 feet wide, center on center. For a hedge, you can plant 18 to 24 inches apart for a shorter garden border. These compact panicle shrubs also work great in garden planters. Typically you will not need more than 1 for each planter, unless it is very large, over 48 inches wide.
