29 Ways to Grow Hydrangeas in Containers
These gorgeous blooming shrubs are Southern garden staples, and we have plenty of ideas for your hydrangea container gardens this year.
Also check out our planting tips and hydrangea care advice to ensure your hydrangeas are healthy and happy. We’ll even tell you how to root your hydrangeas and how to change the color of their blooms. Pink or blue? It’s up to you!—and the pH of the soil. (Except for white French and Mountain hydrangeas—they stay the same color no matter the pH of the soil.)
1. Lacecap Combination
This container combines ‘Shooting Star’ lacecap hydrangea, parlor palm (Chamaedorea elegans), pineapple lily (Eucomis ‘Aloha Lily Leia’), ‘Kent Beauty’ ornamental hybrid oregano, and Southern maidenhair fern (Adiantum capillus-veneris) for a pretty blue-green-purple palette that looks gorgeous anywhere.
2. Front Porch Blooms
Tailor your hydrangeas to your decor. Blue hydrangeas look gorgeous underneath a porch ceiling painted in a clear, classic blue.
3. Up a Tree
This panicle hydrangea, Hydrangea paniculata ‘Limelight’, makes for a stunning container when planted in its single-stem, tree-shrub form.
