Tips for growing hydrangeas in Texas

It’s essential that hydrangeas be protected from excessive heat, which means they aren’t always the best choice for Texas, even here in North Texas. Exposure to light from the northeast is best or else light from the north or the east. They need a kit of water. Setting your sprinkler on manual us suggested. Keep a close eye on them and water when you think they need a drink. Plants indicate they are suffering from not enough water by a dulling of the leaves or by a drooping of their foliage. Don’t wait until the blossoms or the leaves start to wilt. Water the plants thoroughly at the first hint that they’re thirsty. Hydrangeas are deciduous, meaning they will have bare stems in winter so you’ll need to get used to that. D Magazine’s expert gardeners suggest a solution: “If this phase bothers you, plant a low evergreen shrub, such as Indian hawthorn pinkie or Clara, or a dwarf pittosporum in front to camouflage part of the dormant plant.” Read stories like this and more in your latest edition of The Ennis News.
