Growing Hydrangeas


There seems to be a growing interest in hydrangeas. Along with the new or renewed interest in this genus, there are some common questions about plant selection, pruning and care. Eric Barrett, Extension Educator in Mahoning County, recently authored an OSU FactSheet HYG-1263, Selecting Hydrangeas for the Home Landscape to help gardeners understand this group of plants in the genus Hydrangea. 

Species of hydrangeas grown in Ohio include:
