    Maintenance Notes: 

    We recommend a minimum of six hours of sun for the strongest stems and the most abundant flowers. In hot climates, afternoon shade is beneficial, but some sun is still recommended for the best results.

    Cascade hydrangeas bloom on old wood, so it's best to avoid pruning them, except to remove any dead wood. These hydrangeas cannot be cut back or trimmed at any time of the year without impacting the bloom for either the current season or the next. 

    A 2-3" (5-7.6 cm) layer of shredded bark mulch helps shallow-rooted hydrangeas to conserve moisture and keep roots growing vigorously, which ensures the best performance. Fertilize in early spring, after the ground has thawed but before new growth begins, to ensure the best results.

    • Nice looking shrub, really stunning when you see it finished by a professional greenhouse/grower. The plant was covered in clean white blooms when I purchased in April, Tag said full sun but I have noticed the plant tends to wilt a bit after 5 or 6 hours in full sun. My plants rebound quickly once sun passes. I am not sure how this shrub would fair in heat of summer with full afternoon sun. My pair get full morning sun until about 1 pm. I was drawn to the white blooms which the plant had when I purchased it, About 3 weeks after purchasing the blooms have turned a dusty pink hue. I think that might be due to my area having a cold spring season. I am in zone 7 on Capecod. Looking forward to seeing if the shrub will really grow to a 4×4 ft mature plant. The branches are tender and cascade. In my opinion the plant looks best on a wall or higher off the ground. To see it from the side versus looking down on it is a big difference. Much more impressive to highlight the cascading branches, and the soft mounding shape.

    • I ordered the 2 gallon size. My plant arrived yesterday. April 22. (Garden Zone 6b/7a) I typically purchase my plants at my local nursery. I am so excited about the introduction of this Fairytrail Bride hydrangea- it is out of stock at my local garden centers. So, I decided to order directly from PW. So. Glad. I. Did! My plant arrived securely & carefully packaged for shipment. It is very healthy looking and covered with buds! I am thrilled with my purchase!! I would not hesitate to order directly from PW.

    • I grow over 400 hydrangea cultivars and fairy bride cascade is unique and a show stopper to the visitors to my gardens. With the heat and humidity at 97 right now she is taking a break. Bring on more of these new creations from Europe!
