Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:
One of three Hydrangeas in the Double Dutch series, Double Dutch Gouda opens with star-shaped, double flowers – 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 cream-colored clusters of double 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.
