The Hydrangea is an annual flowering plant that is native to southern and eastern Asia and North and South America. Upon the Hydrangea plant, two types of flowers bloom, both the mophead flower and the pompom flower. Hydrangeas bloom from early spring to late autumn, and grows in a variety of colors, from, white, pink, blue, to red and more. The color of the flowers that bloom often corresponds to the PH balance of the soil. Acidic soil produces blue flowers, whereas neutral soils produce white blooms and alkaline soils produce pink or purple blooms. Hydrangeas require shade or part-shade as both the leaves and flowers burn quite easily. Soil should be constantly moist and well drained. Place in a bright location that benefits from indirect sunlight. Then at night, for best care, move the Hydrangea to a spot with temperatures between 50 and 60 F. Then, water the plant regularly by soaking the plant in a tray of water. As with outdoor planted Hydrangeas, the potted Hydrangea benefits from moist, yet well-drained soil. If potted Hydrangeas are displayed outside, move indoors before first frost. Avoid displaying an indoor potted Hydrangea in front of a window as this can cause flower color to fade.
