Answer: The Hydrangea macrophylla blooms on old wood and should be pruned after blooming. By perennial lily that blooms 5 times you mean daylily, then Hemerocallis 'Stella D'Oro' would probably be the choice. It blooms on and off all summer long. I'd check magazine's in their January issues for new and improved plants. National Gardening has a big story on vegetables, Horticulture and Fine Gardening talk a lot about perennials and shrubs.
