Description

Great balls of blue blooms! Spectacularly large blue ball-shaped flowers rebloom over the summer. Named for Georgia’s ex-football coach, Vince Dooley, who grew them in his yard, this hydrangea blooms in the ancillary bud so even if a frost nips the terminal bud, the plant will still bloom. Fast growing and easy care! Thrives in light to partial shade as well as sun! Reaches 5 feet tall and wide. For best color, use Soil Acidifier.

I have a Dooley hydrangea. Was wondering how to prune it? I get no flowers
Judy K on Feb 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi, Judy. If needed, prune immediately after flowering by cutting back flowering stems to a pair of healthy buds. Prune out weak or winter-damaged stems in late winter/early spring. If it's not flowering, it's probably lacking phosphorus. Have you done a soil test to make sure the nutrients are in balance?
