In partnership with Endless Summer Hydrangeas, GrowIt! is showcasing the most beautiful hydrangea photos this month! The Endless Summer® Collection consists of five gorgeous re-blooming hydrangeas. We’ve included some information about the different types so you can find which ones would work best in your garden!
The Original 💙
Let’s begin with The Original. With its vibrant blue color, it is a classically beautiful hydrangea that blooms from spring through fall. “The Original” is a hardy, disease-resistant, and time-tested sensation. Coolest of all, The Original, can bloom as either an eye-catching blue OR a dazzling pink. To alter the color of the hydrangea simply change your soils’ pH levels with the Endless Summer Color Kits!
Blushing Bride 👰
If the name didn’t give it away already, the Blushing Bride hydrangea is a white bloom with white semi-double florets and pink accents! Starting in late spring, Blushing Bride provides an elegant touch of soft, white blooms in your garden all the way into fall. It can serve as either a focal point or can be used in your garden to balance and separate the louder, harsher colors of your other plants and flowers. Due to its pure white color, it has become a favorite for wedding bouquets, arrangements and centerpieces.
Twist-n-Shout®, the first reblooming lacecap hydrangea, has deep pink or periwinkle blue hydrangea flowers, depending on soil pH, from late spring through fall. The vivid red stems are incredibly sturdy and support the large blooms to keep your garden looking full all summer long. These dependable blooms and their intense colors make these lacecap hydrangeas a favorite for everyone from new gardeners to Master Gardeners.
Bloomstruck is for the gardener who likes to pick their preference. You can change this blooms' color to your liking. Depending on soil pH, you can have vivid rose-pink or purple hydrangea flower heads. BloomStruck has incredibly strong red-purple stems, dark green leaves with beautiful red petioles and red veins. It has above average heat tolerance and is disease resistance which creates the perfect combination of beauty and hardiness for your garden!
