Ivory blooms and ebony stems makes some beautiful music on this unique and captivating hydrangea. Those fluffy flowerheads are a glowing white with little dimples of pale green at their centers and gives your partly shaded garden a burst of welcome floral interest. Zebra boasts a lengthy bloom season that stretches from summer through autumn. Those midnight colored stems offsets the bright cottony flowers and makes for an eye-catching display as arranged cutflowers. Hydrangeas love their moisture and this one is no different so make sure that it receives plenty of water. It prefers well-drained and fertile soil in an area that gets partial sunlight. Zebra is an appealing landscape booster, but also does quite well in large containers.
Do not deadhead finished flowers, leave them be until spring and then when the new shoots arrive cut the previous seasons flowering stems to about a fourth to the base and the rest back to the first pair of buds.
