Smooth Hydrangea is a native shrub, growing about 4 feet tall and has a round- ed, spreading form. It has wide, flat clusters of flowers. Annabelle is a cultivar that produces enormous (to 1 foot) globular clusters of sterile white flowers. ,Mmabelle blooms in mid-to late summer. It will grow well in sun or partial shade, likes moist well-drained soil but is a tough plant that will tolerate a range of soil condi- tions. Grandiflora has 6 inch clusters of sterile white flowers and also grows to about 4 feet. Smooth hydrangea blooms on new wood so if you cut old stems to the ground in late winter, the plant will still bloom this year. Panicle Hydrangea is a large, multi-stemmed shrub that can be trained as a small tree. This hydrangea grows 10 to 20 feet tall, though some cultivars are smaller. One cultivar known as Peegee Hydrangea is a 10 to 15 foot shrub or up to a 25 foot tree. The leaves are 5 inches long and turn bronze in the fall. The flowers are mainly fertile, in 10 to 15 inch clusters and are white slowly fading to pink in the fall. Brussels Lace is anoth- er Panicle Hydrangea and has lacy conical cream-white flower clusters and is a pro- lific boomer. Tardiva has lacy cream white flower clus- ters and flowers later, in August and September. Unique has large flower clusters up to a foot long. Panicle hydrangea thrives in full sun and moist, well- drained soil. It blooms on new wood. It is best to thin, shape or remove dead blooms as needed in late winter or early spring rather than cutting back the entire plant. Climbing hydrangea is a deciduous clinging vine using aerial rootlets. It has deep green foliage that may have yellow fall color. Older vines have a peeling, cinna- mon colored bark.

They MDH adopts new im consist mainly of small, fra- nization requirements grant, cream colored flowers. Climbing hydrangea prefers soil that is moist, fertile and well-drained. It will grow in full sun or partial shade. It needs a sturdy structure such as a heavy wooden arbor or fence to grown on. It doesn't require much pruning until well estab- lished and then you can cut back unwanted stems. There is now a popular new hydrangea called Endless Summer. The plant blooms on old and new wood, which means it will flower even if it's pruned at the wrong time. It is supposed to be hardy to zone 4. It blooms pink in alkaline soil and blue in acidic soil. One common reason for lack of bloom on hydrangeas is too much shade. They will grow well in partial shade, but in heavy', all-day shade, the plants just won't flower The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has adopted rules that set out new immuniza- tion requirements and make several modifications to the current school immunization requirements.
