Propogating Hydrangeas

Blue Hydrangea

Late last summer I dug up the rooted stem of the little hydrangea (below) and planted it by the front steps. I had been waiting all summer for it to develop a good root system.

The main shrub – (photo at bottom)- had some low branches that were touching the ground and one of the branches had rooted itself in the middle of the stem.

Come to find out, this is a great way to propagate – or start new- plants.

I noticed this year that there is already another new little shrub growing that will need to be dug up and planted some place else.
