Cultivation French hydrangea
The French hydrangea has a shrub- like development. These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The French hydrangea is medium in size and 2 m in height; in the summer it assumes a purple colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year.

Light French hydrangeaPosizione mezza ombra
Locate this plant in a partially shady place, where it can take in the solar rays during the coolest hours of the day. We suggest growing the The French hydrangea in the garden; these are very rustic plants.To prevent damage caused by the cold temperatures, during the months with definately harsh minimum temperatures, we can protect the shrubs by covering the soil around the stem with straw or dry leaves.

Water French hydrangeaTenere Umido
Let's wet abundantly with about 1-2 buckets of water , acting when the soil is pretty dry; during this period of the year we can water even every 2-3 weeks . If we want to grow these plants in a vase, we should water them a bit more often, compared to plants cultivated in the ground; Every 2-3 years we should renew the substratum in the vase, or enrich with organic amender.

Pests French hydrangea
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.

Mold French hydrangea
Let’s grow the The French hydrangea in a specific soil for acidophilic plants, which slightly withholds moisture.
