Design IdeasThe perfect plant for foundations that's large enough for solid color with a bonus of gorgeous flowers. Plant in problem acidic soils beneath canopies of shade trees or even smaller accent trees. Very bright flowers are good attention-getters at focal points with groups of them intensifying this overall effect. Good for edging outdoor living spaces with cooling, rich green foliage and close up appreciation of huge flower trusses. A vital component of a florist's or crafter's landscape when massed to provide plentiful cutting material.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Provide well-drained soil, rich in organic matter. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before spring growth. Prune to shape after flowering.Pruning time: summer after flowering.

History:
This hydrangea survived record cold in Minnesota's harsh winter of 1982 and unexpectedly bloomed on schedule the following summer. Neighbor Vern Black, Superintendent of Bailey Nursery was amazed at the discovery, then re-amazed to find the plant re-bloomed in the same season if cut back after flowering. Superior in at least two ways certainly describes Endless Summer.
