'Endless Summer' hydrangeas are the first hydrangeas that bloom on new growth with the ability to rebloom all summer long. This unique plant will also require unique care.
If you've added one of these fantastic plants to your landscape, follow these tips to make sure 'Endless Summer' is the center of attention in your yard for many years to come.
To ensure overwintering success in the first year, the following is recommended:
Endless Summer Hydrangea is very forgiving and will not suffer if left unpruned or pruned at the wrong time. In fact, young, recently planted shrubs are best left alone. Unlike other hydrangeas, your Endless Summer will bloom on both old and new wood (branches that grew last year and new branches from this year).
Another unique feature is that this hydrangea will continue to set buds and bloom throughout the season; deadheading the spent flowers will encourage this. Feel free to cut the blooms for drying or fresh cut in vases because you will actually encourage the plant to produce more blossoms. Spring is the best time to prune.
