First discovered by a nursery worker at Bailey Nurseries in Minnesota USA and hailed by the renowed American horticulturalist Dr. Michael Dirr as “a horticultural miracle” in his book 'Hydrangeas for American Garden' this has only recently been introduced here in the UK.  What sets these aside from other Hydrangeas is that the Endless Summer range can flower on new and old wood. That means you can enjoy the big clusters of white flushed pink flowers (they also come in blue and pink) from June to October. A fabulous long flowering addition to the garden they will also make a great informal hedge.

  • Garden care: Leave the old flower heads in place through the winter. As the new shoots start to emerge in spring cut back a third to a quarter of the previous seasons flowering stems to the base and cut back the remaining flower heads to the first pair of buds.
