The first reblooming lace-cap Hydrangea, Starlight has elegant summer flowers held upright on strong stems. Blooms on both old and new wood and is superior to other rebloomers on the market, with heavier bloom, excellent flower color and thicker, glossier leaves with excellent cold tolerance. Soil pH affects blossom color; blue in highly acidic soils and lilac to pink in slightly acidic to alkaline soils. Vivid flower coloration and attractive, glossy foliage look stunning in massed plantings, containers or as a cut flower.
Partial shade to full sun. Requires regular watering.
Prefers moist, well-drained, amended soils. In non-acidic soils, blue bloom color can be maintained with the addition of aluminum sulfate to the soil several times per year, beginning in fall and repeating before leaves emerge in spring and before buds set. Prune after flowering. Protect in winter in northern zones. Fertilize in spring.
