This is an Ornemental Bacopa. There are probably 5 plants in this urn. It's mostly used as fillers in hanging baskets and flower boxes, along with lobelias.

How do you get them to grow so large? - Do you fertilize? Do you cut them back in the fall or spring? How do you get them to grow so tall and wide. Gorgeous!

Thank you for the nice comment.
I don't put any fertilizer, since our soil is very rich, but I cut them back carefully, but generously, in the middle of March, never in the fall!

What do you use to make the soil more acidic?

If your soil is not acid, an addition of aluminum sulfate on the soil, around the plant, will help. I learned also that the choice of fertilzer will affect the color. A fertilizer low in phosphorus and high in potassium is helpful in producing a good blue color(25/5/30 is good. Potassium is the last number). Superphosphates and bone meal should be avoided when trying to produce blue.

Do hydrangeas need any sun to bloom? - I live in the woods ( oaks mostly ) and I have a new flower bed I want to plant this fall; it is in dense shade. The bed only gets dappled light for a short time. The trees are very tall; their branches start about 20" up and are huge so it would be very difficult to thin out. I want something for a focal point and I L. O. V. E. blue hydrangeas.Would they bloom with no sun or could you recommend something else. I live in middle Tn. Thank you, Mary

Hi Mary,
Since l am not a horticulturist, before answering your question I consulted a very well done book untitled" hydrangeas",by Toni Lawson-Hall, and this is what the author says about shade and hydrangeas: "Most hydrangeas are natural woodland plants, yet this is not always taken into consideration when choosing a site. The high cover of tall woodland trees gives dappled shade, which is ideal. In such a setting,the hydrangeas flower well, but the blooms are protected from strong sunlight..... Shrubs grown in a woodland site not only keep their flowers well and true to colour, but the colours seem almost luminescent in the semi shade. Moreover, both flowers and leaves last longer into the winter when under some tree cover..."
I have, personally, hydrangeas thriving in shade as well as in full sun, but in both cases, I make sure that they are properly watered. They don't like dry soil. Mulch will help retain the moisture in the soil. One thing that you also have to know: If your soil is not acid, they won't be blue.
Hope this will help you.

Thank you VERY much. I love hydrangeas and my soil is acid. You just started the bones of my new bed. I will add astilbe, lily of the valley, hostas, ferns all the shade loving beauties I just love. Thank you, Mary

Between eight and ten years and I cut them back by at least 30'', every year. It's why they are so wide. This year, the one at the back, on the left, has probably two hundred flowers. I planted it in 2002. See attached picture. Its flowers are not fully blue yet. They will be In two weeks, and a lot bigger.

It's a Sutera Cordata, also known by the name Ornamental Bacopa. Easy to grow, it is in bloom all summer. There were probably five of them in this urn. I also use it as a filler, along with Lobellias, in hanging baskets and planters, as shown on the attached pictures. ( These pictures can also be found in my Ideabook: "A colorful garden all year round") .

Hydrangea 'Seemanii' is a rare and HARDY EVERGREEN climbing plant has been introduced from Mexico and is becoming known as the Mexican Climbing Hydrangea. The foliage is self clinging and has copper tones maturing to dark green making it ideal for covering sheds, walls, fences and screening from unsightly objects and neighbours! The flowers also are quite extraordinary as the buds are the size of duck eggs opening to beautiful scented flowers during the summer.

They are NOT drought tolerant. Oak leaf varieties hate to have wet feet, so a sandier soil is ok.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Frank Organ added this to Focus Your Garden Palette
Washed denim. Blue is a cooling color — think of the sky and the sea and how they affect us. It can be difficult to use on its own, as it can bleach in strong sun and appear to recede in the garden against other colors. Here, the many shades of the hydrangeas blend, creating an amazing spring display.
