Price Nurseries Official Tree of the Month - JULY

 Tree Hydrangea

This month's Official Tree is not actually a tree but a shrub that has been pruned into a small tree form.  Hydrangeas come in a bazillion varieties and forms which can all be quite confusing but take our word for it, these are just awesome and can do a great job where you want a "dwarf" tree.  Tree Hydrangeas grow in the sun or the shade and are quite tolerant of various soil types but prefer moist, well-drained soil.  Popular varieties include Limelight, Pink Diamond and Quickfire.  Some bloom white and stay that way, others turn varying shades of pink.  The blooms appear in mid-summer, often lasting until frost.  Since they are actually shrubs and can be pruned heavily without damage to future flowering, they are easily controlled and can be kept in a 6-8' size range.  We've got some balled and burlapped specimens or start with a smaller one in a pot, they make a great gift!
