The Silver Blue Variegated Hydrangea packs a lot of color onto one plant. Unusual variegated leaves make for a lush backdrop for delicate lace-cap blooms that glow in either pink or blue depending on the ph of the soil.
Plant your variegated hydrangea in a partly shady area with moist, well-drained soil. Too much shade can keep your hydrangea from flowering, according to the U.S. National Arboretum. Do not choose a dry, windy site. Excessive wind will cause the leaves to quickly dehydrate and the plant to wilt, according to the University of Rhode Island Landscape Horticulture Program.
Water weekly during the first season after planting your hydrangea. After that, water thoroughly only during dry spells. Apply 2 to 3 inches of mulch around the base of the plant and outward to its drip line to help retain moisture.
Cover your hydrangea, if needed, during late spring freezes to protect it from flower bud damage. You can use light blankets or sheets. Remove the covers once the temperature rises above freezing.
Change your plant’s flower color by adjusting the pH.
