This beauty will also attract pollinators like butterflies. The Cherry-Go-Round™ Hydrangea grows as a perennial in USDA zones 5 through 9.
Cherry-Go-Round™ Hydrangea Care

The Cherry-Go-Round™ Hydrangea is not picky about soil pH. This plant has medium water needs, so give it a drink when the top several inches of soil dry out.
Apply a balanced slow-release fertilizer to support new growth and plenty of blooms in the spring. Deadhead the plant to encourage more prolific blooming.
