New Red and Pink Everblooming Hydrangeas

by Charlie Nardozzi

Many gardeners in Northern climates have been enjoying the blue hydrangea ?Endless Summer? for a few years. Unlike most mophead hydrangeas (Hydrangea macrophylla), ?Endless Summer? blooms on new and old wood, so even if it dies back in winter, it still produces a flower show the next summer.

Now a new series of hardy hydrangeas is available that expands the color choices. The Forever & Ever hydrangeas also bloom on new and old wood, they are compact growers, and they produce large flowers.

Forever & Ever Red (H. macrophylla ?Red Sensation?) grows 3 feet tall and wide and produces large, round flowers in midsummer that start out red and fade to purple. It?s hardy to USDA zone 4. Forever & Ever ?Double Pink? (H. macrophylla ?RE109?) has the same growth habit, but it produces double pink or blue flowers, depending on the soil pH. It?s hardy to USDA zone 5.
