Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

Bluer than the bluest of blues, the rich, saturated color of this Hydrangea is unparalleled. Flowers show their first hint of color in May/June and continue through the summer with new blooms that open to refresh the old ones. Its commanding presence makes it ideal for the patio or in a bed along a garden path where it won’t be missed. Magical® Bluebells also makes an excellent gift plant, offering months of performance for someone special. Let’s just come out with it…this is one Hydrangea that’s nearly impossible to be without!

Note: This variety must be treated with aluminum sulphate to attain the intense blue color

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.
