our newest crush

This mophead is packed with plump flower heads that can range from a bright raspberry red to neon purple, depending upon soil pH. If you want to skew purple in our clay soil, amend with a bit of Fertilome Aluminum Sulphate. People love how compact Summer Crush is, topping out at about 3 feet and perfect for containers or as a tidy addition throughout the landscape. A great variety for sturdy and scene-stealing cut flower arrangements, too.

Soil: Evenly moist but well-drained soils are best. A 2-3″ layer of shredded bark mulch is recommended in all areas, all year round.
We recommend Altums Soil Amendment and Organic Plant Magic soil additive to improve planting areas.
Pruning: Blooms on old and new wood; do not trim or cut back, but dead wood may be removed.
Water: Average to high water needs. Though big leaf hydrangeas cannot grow in wet soils, they can become drought stressed easily and should be watered regularly.
Water 2-3 times weekly until established.
Fertilizer: Fertilize once in early spring with a Rose Food or Organic Plant Magic soil additive.
