Acum am citit pe un site despre hortensii pe care eu il consider de incredere (www.hydrangeashydrangeas.com
) si am gasit ceva despre taieri. Da, se pare ca, datorita faptului ca infloresc pe lastarii noi unii le taie scurt ca sa nu aiba peste iarna in fata ochillor betele goale care poate le deranjeaza panorama
Dar vad ca nu e chiar recomandata taierea asta drastica
"Method II is USED FOR: H. arborescens (Annabelle types) and H. paniculata (PeeGee types) hydrangeas. These types of hydrangeas bloom on new wood (new stems). It is a joy to grow these type hydrangeas because they are determined to bloom every single year, no matter how they are treated. The only time they cannot be pruned is in the spring ('Annabelle') or in the summer (PG) when they are preparing to bloom.
Many people grow hedges of Annabelle and cut them within a few inches of the ground each fall so they will not be an eyesore during the winter. They will still bloom beautifully in the spring/summer, however this drastic pruning may not allow stems to increase in size, and they may need staking to hold up the large heads"
"If your hydrangeas tend to flatten in the rain, it may help to prune Annabelle to about 18"-24" tall rather than cutting it to the ground every year. This will allow the stems to thicken a little each year, becoming stouter and better able to support the other branches and blooms. In addition, the heads will be more plentiful but slightly smaller (not so small that you will be disappointed).
The slightly smaller heads will be less likely to droop.
If you live in a more northern area, you may not be able to use this tip. The Annabelle stems may not survive the winter, and thus they will be new from the ground each year"
