The rocketing popularity of 'Endless Summer' results from the fact that, unlike most hydrangeas, this one has the ability to bloom as far north as Minnesota (maybe much further). In the south, where hydrangeas rarely bloom more than once per summer, 'Endless Summer' will often produce a full set of blooms twice each summer.
As you can see from the pictures below, 'Endless Summer' may be blue, pink, or lavender, depending on the soil in which it is grown. It will not be dark blue, deep pink or purple. The intensity of a hydrangea, for the most part, stays the same, no matter what color it is. 'Endless Summer' is always light in intensity.

Endless Summer in Rhode Island
John, of Woonsocket, Rhode Island, is growing these beautiful blue 'Endless Summer' hydrangeas.
Interestingly, he says they bloomed throughout the summer, and the new blooms gradually turned to pink, then to light pink. John says, "They were stunning."
Endless Summer in Alabama
Grown and photographed by Gail in Trussville, Alabama.
The color combination of the daylilies with the hydrangeas is one of the most beautiful garden groupings we've ever seen.
This picture was taken in November, 2004. The blooms on this hydrangea were originally blue and aged to these gorgeous fall colors.
