29 Ways to Grow Hydrangeas in Containers
Ready your containers, because the hydrangeas are here.
Southerners love hydrangeas. The only thing better? Hydrangeas in containers. These gorgeous blooming shrubs are Southern garden staples, and we have plenty of ideas for your hydrangea container gardens this year. Whether you are planting French (a.k.a bigleaf) hydrangeas (Hydrangea macrophylla), smooth hydrangea (H. arborescens), oakleaf hydrangea (H. quercifolia), panicle hydrangea (H. paniculata), or mountain hydrangea (H. serrata), we’ll help you get you containers in top-notch shape and keep them looking good for the long haul. Also check out our planting tips and hydrangea care advice to ensure your hydrangeas are healthy and happy. We’ll even tell you how to root your hydrangeas and how to change the color of their blooms. Pink or blue? It’s up to you!—and the pH of the soil. (Except for white French and Mountain hydrangeas—they stay the same color no matter the pH of the soil.) Take your hydrangeas for a spin in your favorite containers this year—and happy planting!
