Pistachio Hydrangea Shrubs for Sale Online
Next Generation Pistachio Hydrangea is a compact mop-head cultivar that grows 2.5 to 3 feet tall and 3 to 5 feet wide. The 6-inch-long leaves are glossy green.
Next Generation Pistachio Hydrangea typically blooms on old wood (flower buds are produced the previous fall and overwintered) in late spring with a repeat bloom on new wood from summer often into fall if spent flowers are regularly deadheaded. Each inflorescence (to 5 inches in diameter) is a large mophead covered with showy, sterile florets and a few fertile florets. Each sterile floret sports a variety of exciting and attractive colors.
Next Generation Pistachio Hydrangea is best grown in rich, medium moisture, well-drained soils in part shade. Tolerates full sun only if grown in consistently moist soils. Plants generally need little pruning. If required, prune Hydrangea Pistachio immediately after flowering by cutting back flowering stems to a pair of healthy buds. Prune out weak or winter-damaged branches in late winter/early spring.
Pistachio Hydrangea should be grown in a location that is shaded by the hot afternoon sun. They require evenly moist, well-drained soil for optimal growth.
Pistachio Hydrangea is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments and will benefit from being planted in a relatively sheltered location. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in summer and winter to conserve soil moisture and protect it in exposed locations or colder microclimates.
