Hydrangea macrophylla 'Variegata'

Variegata Hydrangea, Garden Hydrangea

This is a wide-ranging group of evergreens and climbing species that includes the old-fashioned, ever-popular deciduous shrub. Plant the fast-grower in a mass in partial shade or in tubs, and be sure to water heavily. Adding aluminum sulfate to make the soil more acid produces blue-tinted flowers, while adding lime creates neutral to alkaline soil which flavors pink-tinted flowers. Remove old flowers and deadwood to control shape immediately after flowering.

Dark green leaves edged with cream and light green, and clusters of double blue flowers accent this slower-growing shrub. Florists may sell the 'Variegata' as 'Tricolor'.
