Two-Toned Blooms in Tree Form

Incredible bright white, pink and deep red blooms…now in tree form. Like a sweet dessert for your garden, these flowers are irresistible. In fact, you’ll find yourself (and your neighbors) staring at the gorgeous blooms that appear year after year!

As the cooler months set it, the blooms still offer color. The stems can vary in color and sometimes present a bright red, making a unique contrast against the flowers for your winter landscape. When the flowering trees in other landscapes are fading, your Vanilla StrawberryHydrangea Tree will be going strong.

In fact, it’s the hardiest Hydrangea available.The flowers bloom on each season’s new growth, so frost and cold won’t hurt this durable tree.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: If you live in a colder state, plant your Vanilla StrawberryHydrangea in full sun. If you live in a warmer state, plant your Hydrangea in a place that will get some afternoon shade. Make sure your soil is moist and well-drained. Amend the soil with some compost and 15-30-15 fertilizer. Plant in a hole big enough to give the root ball some room to grow. Place a layer of mulch around the edge of the trunk, covering the ground to the edge of the canopy.

2. Watering: Water your Hydrangea weekly for the first 6 months. After this time, you will only need to water your plant when you get less than 1″ of rain during the week. The mulch should keep the soil moist. Never let your soil dry out completely. It may take some time to see blooms on your plant, but once you do, they will multiply rapidly.

3. Fertilizing: You can fertilize the plant every spring with a bloom encouraging fertilizer. Fertilizing too much will cause the tree to produce more leaves and fewer blooms, so be careful to only add a little bit each year.

4. Pruning: You do not need to prune your Vanilla StrawberryHydrangea, but you can if you like. Only prune in late winter or early spring after the worst frost is over. You can prune to the shape you desire.
