Can you plant a hydrangea flower?

Most hydrangeas thrive in rich, porous, somewhat moist soils. Add compost to enrich poor soil. They prefer full sun in the morning, with some afternoon shade; however, many will grow and bloom in partial shade. Set the plant in the hole and fill it half full with soil.

Also asked, can you plant a hydrangea stem?

Snip the cutting from the stem. If available, dip the end of the cutting in rooting hormone. While rooting hormone will increase the chances of successfully propagating hydrangeas, you can still propagate hydrangea shrubs without it. Now, stick the cutting into damp potting soil.

Additionally, can you root hydrangeas in water? Some people have rooted them in water, but many others (such as myself) have never been able to make this work. Susan Park Cole sent us the picture to the right demonstrating that it is possible to root hydrangeas in water. Occasionally roots form when one leaves an arrangement in water for a long time.

Regarding this, what is the best time to plant hydrangeas?

For best results, plant hydrangeas in spring or fall, when temperatures are mild. You can plant hydrangeas when blooming specimens become available in nurseries in early to mid-spring.

What can you plant next to hydrangeas?

It is also effective to pick plants with very different foliage for companions for hydrangea, such as lacy, delicate ferns. Or consider the delicate evergreen 'Soft Caress' mahonia for hydrangea companion plants. The feathery texture of the foliage contrasts nicely with the wide hydrangea leaves.
