|The blooms are formed on the new wood. Pruning in the fall or early spring will produce lots of new wood. At this time you can control the height, spread and shape of the plant, by the amount that is pruned. I like to use a hand pruning shears not hedge shears. With hand pruning shears I can better control the shape and the cuts are more precise. Thinning can help reduce some of the weight off the branches. The flowers can become very heavy, especially after a rain. Can Be pruned hard.
|Hybrid of Hydrangea Pink Diamonds developed at the University of Georgia.
