Potted hydrangeas – often called florist hydrangeas – are easy to care for indoors, providing you keep the soil moist. Don't let them dry out! You'll find that those large leaves and big blooms make them thirsty plants. There's no quicker way to kill any indoor plant than letting its roots stand in water.

Simply so, how do you keep hydrangeas alive indoors?

Keep the plant indoors near a south-facing window or bright artificial light. Provide enough water to keep the soil moist at all times. Move the hydrangea outside in the spring after the chance for frost has passed. Put the hydrangea in a spot where it receives bright morning sun and dappled afternoon shade.

Additionally, will potted hydrangeas rebloom? Although you can transplant these hydrangeas outdoors after they stop blooming, it's also possible to force them into bloom a second time as a potted plant. Reblooming hydrangeas requires proper pruning and care, along with a dormant period, to produce attractive flowers.

Consequently, can you plant a potted hydrangea outside?

It is always best to plant the potted hydrangea outdoors whenever possible. It should only be planted outdoors in early to mid summer as it needs time to acclimate to outdoor conditions before winter arrives.

How do you take care of potted hydrangeas in the winter?

The best hydrangea winter protection for potted plants is to bring them inside prior to the first frost. If they are too cumbersome to move, they can remain outside and be protected by covering the entire pot and plant. One method is to use foam insulation to protect your potted plants.
