Caring for this plant however is not always an easy task but definitely one that won't cause you to lose any sleep. Here is a simple guide to help you care for and grow a healthy Hydrangea seemannii.
Instructions - 5 Steps to Growing a Healthy and Happy Hydrangea seemannii
Step One: Choose a planting location (if possible) that is both shaded and near a sturdy structure such as a wall or fence.
The Hydrangea seemannii is a climber by nature and will attain best growth (upwards of 20 to 30 feet) when it is allowed the chance to grow as it is inclined to.
Step Two: Provide the proper soil. The Hydrangea seemannii thrives in a fertile, healthy, moist and well drained soil. A rich manure fertilizer would be optimal for this garden climber.
Step Three: Water this plant regularly to prevent the soil from becoming dry or drying out. 2 to 3 times per week should be adequate if you have planted it in a properly shaded location. If your planting location is not shaded and receives a good amount of sun then it may require watering more often.
Step Four: Remove any and all diseased leaves as soon as possible to prevent it from spreading to the rest of this garden climber. This plant can be a bit finicky, especially when it has not yet become established so disease can quickly eliminate this garden wonder even if it was previously thriving.
Step Five: Fertilize your Hydrangea seemannii in the springtime with a well processed, rich manure fertilizer. This should be done every spring at least until it has become well established and is thriving.
