These GIFT HYDRANGEAS are specially grown over winter in a greenhouse and are prepared and grown to provide you these summer colors during the early spring indoors.
Once finished flowering inside, they can be moved outdoors onto the patio, but it is recommended to wait until the average night time temperature reaches 60 degrees. If planting out in the garden, it is often best in mid summer with partial shade when the plant has been outside for a while and hardened to the outside climate.
These are not cold hardy varieties and would only try planting out in the garden if you wish in areas of Zone 6 and above.
If planting outside after flowering, it prefers a well worked friable soils that are slightly alkaline pH to just over 7.0. (If soil is acidic - around pH of 6, flowering will become more blue) If soil is sandy or gravelly incorporate organic matter and cover with mulch. Avoid very heavy water logged conditions.
