Easy and compact

A compact bush. That's the hydrangea 'Pink Petticoat' (Hydrangea serrata). This bush is just as lovely as other hydrangeas, but stays small, reaching a height of at most 50 to 60 cm. So it doesn't need pruning as often! In the spring, light pink flowers bloom on the bush. In autumn, the leaves turn red. So, you can enjoy a romantic colour across two seasons! The hydrangea is winter-hardy.While it grows, remove the dead flowers in the spring. Once the hydrangea is full-grown, you can also prune branches to keep the bush's shape. Plant the Hydrangea in a place with plenty of sunlight. The shrub prefers moist, well-drained soil.

Planting

What do I need?

• Bucket
• Trowel
• Garden peat
 
Prior to planting make sure the root ball of the Hydrangea serrata is well-moistened by soaking in a bucket of lukewarm water. Prepare a suitable hole in good, loose soil and plant the root ball of the Hydrangea at the correct depth in the hole. The top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil, press firmly down and water immediately after planting.

Hydrangea also grows well in large planters. Make sure that there are holes in the base to allow for adequate drainage.

The hydrangea thrives in moist soil

Hydrangea serrata will thrive in fairly moist, humus-rich soil - improve poor soil with the addition of compost or well rotted manure. Keep in mind the colour of your plant when planting. See further under 'colour info!'.

A spot in the (part)shade is preferred. Full sun is fine as long as the soil stays moist. A nice moist planter is fine too but the water must be able to drain well. Too much water will kill a hydrangea.

Care

What do I need?

• Watering can
• Plant food
• Cow manure
 
Water your Hydrangea serrata on a regular basis during dry periods as they are not tolerant of dry soil. Add plant food to the water once a month between March and July. In early spring the hydrangea will benefit from a mix of granulated cow manure.

Pruning Mountain Hydrangea

Hydrangea flowers appear on last year's branches. If you prune during the spring, no flowers will appear that year. Pruning is not absolutely necessary unless the plant becomes too large. If you do prune, cut the branches back by 1/3rd. You will have fewer flowers during that year, but the flowers will bloom normally during the second year.

Completely cut back all dead branches. Carefully cut off all dead flowers in the winter (late February or early March) taking care not to remove the new topmost buds.

Extra

The flowers of this Hydrangea serrata have fairly flat panicles that are distinguished by their colours - in the centre the flowers are small, a lovely dark shade and fertile. on the edge they are large and sterile. The foliage is beautiful in autumn when it turns yellow and orange!

Hydrangea serrata makes a wonderfully cut flower for the home!
