43 cultivars of hydrangea are being evaluated for bloom potential

Nursery Crop Development

Objectives:

    Hydrangea macrophylla as cut woody stems for the florist trade

  • To evaluate 43 cultivars of Hydrangea macrophylla for their bloom potential in Kentucky landscapes.

  • To evaluate 43 cultivars of Hydrangea macrophylla that have not been previously evaluated for cut stem floral qualities using high tunnels as a production system.

  • To evaluate market potential and desirability of 10 hydrangea cultivars in the "antiqued" or "classic" stage using high tunnels as a production system.

  • To evaluate additional Hydrangea macrophylla cultivars using high tunnel cultivation in containers and controlling pH and aluminum availability in order to manipulate bloom color.

  • To develop an objective system for identification of hydrangea flower color that can be used to communicate actual color to prospective buyers of hydrangea cut stems.
