(Bracted Hydrangea) Blue Bunny™ Hydrangea forms its flower buds on new wood and thus blooms reliably every year. Blue Bunny™ Hydrangea is adrift of elegant blue and white lace-cap flowers from mid-summer until frost. This shrub gives off dramatic contrasts with its colors of blue and white flowers and olive green foliage. It creates an awesome focal point. To top it off the soil pH does not change the flower color. Superior specimen plant and is great for use in groupings or masses, shrub borders, woodland gardens, and containers. As a young plant it is best to prune or pinch your plant in order to build a full-bodied, well-branched plant. If the plant is leggy when you purchased it, shear the plant back hard by 1/3 to 1/2 its original size. Once it puts on an inch or two of growth, pinch the branch tips to remove just the growing tips, these tips control branching. Once growing tips are removed the buds below it will turn into stems. Once these new branches grow an inch or two, pinch the tips out again. You can repeat this throughout the first growing season as you are tending your garden. Although you will sacrifice one year of blooms, this technique results in a well-branched, full-bodied plant that will have more flowers in subsequent years.
