Hydrangea woes...

Last year I planted five hydrangeas in my yard - four blue and one pink, called "Buttons and Bows." The pink one's pH is right on, but several of the blues actually bloomed purplish/pink and were not as hardy as the Buttons/Bows. I've used Osmocote for hydrangeas/rhodedendrons and watered with a special plant food for hydrangeas.

I also had one that barely grew, and it seemed to have trouble with waterlogging. This year I pulled it out and dug a bigger hole for it, and then planted it with really good soil. It still doesn't seem to be doing any better.

If the soil drains no better than before, the waterlogging would be no different. Moreover, it may take a while for the plant to recover from being waterlogged, if at all.
