Color Me Pink™ from Bonide® raises the pH of the soil to the right pH (6.5-7.0) for pink-flowering Bigleaf Hydrangeas. A neutral to acidic pH can make these shrubs bloom purple instead of pink. To raise the pH, work 3 scoops per plant of Color me Pink™ into the backfill soil for new plantings. For existing plantings, apply in spring, working 6 scoops (1/2 cup) into the soil around the root zone while staying away from the plant stem. Water well after applying.

Measuring scoop and instructions for use included.

Do I need to cut down my hydrangea bush?
Kitty on Oct 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: NO. NEVER. Two types of hydrangeas: one that grows their new shoots from the ground up each spring (NEW WOOD). These you can prune to ground level in the winter or early spring. Or you can just leave them there to support the new shoots. TWO, some grow their new shoots off the old branches,(OLD WOOD) which go dormant in winter, turn brown, but remain alive. The new shoots need this head start to produce flowers tha year. If you cut them out over the winter, the new snoots will have to grow from the ground up, slowly, but will not mature in time to flower that season. Do not cut these at ground level. Wait until the new branches start growing and then you can see where the stems are dead. Some people prune them about knee high in the winter to keep them vertical and strong, and prevent the new growth from drooping down if too long and heavy.
