Big, bright fuchsia-pink flowers are long-lasting and change to an attractive green with age. They will change to blue in acidic soils with good aluminum availability (apply aluminum sulfate to your soil to change the flower color.) Like the other Cityline hydrangeas, Venice is a dwarf plant that does not need pruning. It will stay small and compact - perfect for foundation plantings and container gardens. The glossy green foliage has excellent mildew resistance so it stays clean and attractive all summer long.
