The Edgy® Hearts Hydrangea is a bigleaf hydrangea with mophead flowers. The flowers on this shrub are truly unique, with heart shaped pink flowers that are variegated with white edges. The flowers can be changed to blue with acidic soils or by adding aluminum sulphate.
The flowers are grown on very strong stems that create perfect flowers for cut flower arrangements or bouquets. Grow these shrubs in mass plantings for a dramatic impact to any landscape, or to have enough flowers for an entire wedding!
The leaves are glossy green that create a darker foliage background to highlight the flowers. This is a medium sized hydrangea, perfect for landscaping, larger containers, or a statement bush in the garden.
Edgy Hearts Hydrangea Care
This macrophylla needs to be cared for just like other hydrangeas of that type. Well drained soil is a must to prevent root rot. But ensure there is moisture by weekly waterings, if not more during hot summer months. Plant in a location with morning sun, but afternoon shade if possible. If you plant in full-sun, be sure to water more frequently during hot summer days or periods of drought, especially in southern states.
To prune edgy hearts hydrangeas, be sure to do so right after flowering. However, it is best to not prune these shrubs if possible, because the flowers grow on old wood (the previous year’s branches that grow). Also, you need to protect the branches and the plants during harsh winters to ensure the shrub flowers the following year. Flower buds are easily damaged in colder climates like zone 5 and 6, so if you do not protect the plants, the buds could die and the bush will not flower the following year.
Edgy Hearts Hydrangea Spacing
Plant the Edgy Hearts Hydrangea 36 to 60 inches apart, center on center. To create a landscaping border, or hedge, plant these 24 to 36 inches apart center on center. If you choose to use these in garden pots, only use 1 plant per container, unless the container is very large and over 6 feet wide.
