When visiting your florist or when you search for flowers online, you will notice that Hydrangeas are one of the most popular blooms today. Each stem might look like a single flower from a distance but they are, in fact made up of a cluster of smaller flowers. Hydrangeas are often used as filler flowers in many arrangements. They are fantastic for creating larger flower displays like funeral crosses too. These flowers usually only bloom during the warmer months of the year but, with the right care, they can produce blooms well into the autumn season too. Autumn Hydrangeas are a specific type of this plant that is known for being particularly hardy during the cooler months of the year.
In the autumn months, Oakleaf Hydrangeas are particularly popular. Their vertical stalks are covered with snow white flowers which makes them especially unique. Panical Hydrangeas also have wonderful white flowers but these flowers turn pink or purple before they perish. Oakleaf Hydrangeas, on the other hand, become brown as they wilt.
Just like many other trees and plants, it’s not only the flowers that decorate your garden when you plant Hydrangeas. The leaves on most of these plants do not change colour during the autumn season. Oakleaf Hydrangeas, however, do experience changing leaf colours during the cooler months and they fall from the plant almost immediately.
If you have Hydrangeas in your garden, you might want to prune them during the autumn months. That said, it’s always important to ask an expert before you do. When you purchase a Hydrangea plant, make sure that you ask about any specific care instructions. This will help you get the most out of the plant and its fabulous flowers. By flowing the pruning guidelines for your plant, you help ensure that it produces even more amazing flowers during the following season.
If your Hydrangea does not seem to be thriving as it should, you might need to relocate it. These plants do need a certain amount of light in order to grow and they should only be moved during the dormant phase. You will know that the plant is entering its dormant phase when the last of its flowers start to perish. You should also prune before relocating the plant in order to make your job that much easier.
