Hydrangea 'Endless Summer'


its first flush of blooms this year



I have to say, no Hummingbirds or Butterflies show any interest in those flowers.
This plant is in regular garden soil and more blue-ish, while my other plant grows in a big pot in bought potting mix and the flowers are pink as can be.

Beautiful. I'll have to try to find one of those at the nursery, My blues are darker than that. I love the softness of your 'endless summer.'

Gorgeous! Last year I got two little cuttings. I rooted them. Only one made it thru the winter. OH I hope my plant will look as nice as yours does one day.

thanks girls I am trying.
Right now, only the water loving plants look good, like this hydrangea for example. all others make droopy faces. We have just too much rain in the last 2 weeks...

Very pretty GT!
I noticed you have two colors going on there? My mopheads are starting to show their stuff as well! This year, most are a nice pink, a few purple and some blues!

How lovely!


Ooooh, I hope my little 'Endless Summer' grows up to look so good!
I just planted it last year, and was really pleased with the glorious blue flowers,
it's just beginning to bloom again, now.
