Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

One of three Hydrangeas in the Double Dutch series, Double Dutch Edam opens with pink, star-shaped, double flowers – accented with white margins – certain to add a delicate feel to any garden space. A re-blooming mop-head, flowering begins in May/June and continues through the summer months with bicolor clusters of double pink and white florets that cover the plant like a blanket of stars. A unique flower form, coupled with an extended bloom time and strong stems, makes the Double Dutch™ varieties ideal for container plantings as well as an excellent choice for the garden.

Note: This Hydrangea will vary in color intensity based on the pH of your soil

Pruning: Can be pruned close to the soil line before Spring, or in the fall when flowering has ceased.  Apply 3-6” of organic mulch after pruning.
