The Original Endless Summer Hydrangea is the first hydrangea that blooms both on the previous year's branches as well as the new season's growth. This shrub has beautiful blue or pink flowers spring through summer. The color of blooms depend on soil pH, which can be amended using an acid fertilizer in the early spring. The compact size of the shrub of 4 feet tall and wide will fit almost any landscape. Makes a superior accent or specimen plant.  These also make great cut flowers for arrangements.

The Original Endless Summer Hydrangea Care

Plant in well-drained, moist soil rich in nutrients. Although not required, prune Endless Summer Hydrangeas in early spring. Trim off any winter-damaged or dead stems throughout the year. Pruning during the growing season is not recommended, but if desired, prune after the first flush of blooms. Because this plant blooms on both old and new wood, pruning will not prevent the shrub from flowering all-together. Provide a layer of organic mulch to help retain moisture, add nutrients to the soil, and protect the plant in the cold winter months. Plant is a full sun to partial shade location, though this plant does best in partial shade. Water frequently, at least once per week. But ensure the soil does not stay wet.

The Original Endless Summer Hydrangea Spacing

To create a garden border, plant 4 feet apart, center on center. In mass plantings or as a foundation plant, space the bushes 8 feet apart. These hydrangeas also do well in garden planters. Ensure the planter is at least 30 inches wide, and has good drainage. Hydrangeas in planters do require more water as the pots dry out easier than the ground.

    I ordered 3 of the 3 gallon plants after reading reviews from other customers and I was not disappointed!! They arrived in just a few days, well packaged and extremely healthy. I am going to do my very best to keep my new hydrangeas the lovely blue that they are now :-) Thank you Plant Addicts!

    Over and above my hopes!

    Posted by Deborah Lys on Mar 20th 2021

    I’m in San Diego, so in my climate, right now is the time to plant hydrangeas. None of our local nurseries had them, so I took a leap of faith and bought three Endless Summer hydrangeas online. Then I called to request a five weeks earlier delivery (Than what the shipping policy laid out). They did it with no wasted time- I received my bushes less than two weeks later. When they arrived, I was so pleased with the shipping and packaging care they had taken to ensure their safe trip from 2500 miles away. They are established bushes, not a tiny stick buried in a 5G bucket. They have near growth and are still thriving after 3 weeks. I’m impressed, all the way around!

    I needed 4 more of this specific hydrangea to match 2 existing ones. They were impossible to find at this point in the season, and with all the "newer" hydrangeas out there. I was so pleased to have this classic hydrangea shipped to my doorstep to match the others. They arrived in great condition and are doing well so far!
