Evergreen: No Deciduous
Pruning: If the hydrangea is growing in a warm climate you should prune the plant immediately after the flowering period. If the climate is somewhat cooler, the plant is best pruned in the spring, just before it comes into flower, however if you prefer there is really no need to prune the Magical hydrangea at all!
The Magical hydrangea does not like having dry roots. The plant needs watering regularly, both in a pot and in the soil during warm periods. You should thereby try to keep the flowers dry. And make sure that the soil drains well.
When should I prune back my Hydrangea:
We suggest waiting until Febrary/March when the frosts have gone. The dead flower heads will protect the plant over the winter months. When the frosts have finished cut it back by approximately a quarter and remove any weak or frost damaged shoots to the healthy wood.
