Hydrangea General Patton
DEC FSHR SSH 1m Rose pink mophead flowers with tightly packed florets. Blooms turn purple in very acid soils. Add lime to keep red. The rule is blue with aluminum sulphate or turn pink with lime. Prune well back to a healthy shoot after flowers go brown or lightly prune back in mid to late winter. Too vigorous a pruning in late spring may mean fewer flowers in summer. Thin any weak shoots.
