Like Endless Summer®, this Lacecap Hydrangea flowers on old wood and new, so even if you live in Zones 4-5, you should enjoy flowers. The outer blooms turn pink or periwinkle blue, depending on the pH of your soil, while the smaller central flowers are deep pink. Plants form a rounded shape of glossy, deep green leaves on sturdy red stems. This variety is compact enough for containers, too. 'PIIHM-I' PP 20,176
Hydrangea is a valuable genus of some 100 species of shrubs and vines grown for their large and very showy flower heads. Hydrangeas are at their best in summer and fall -- quiet time for most woody plants -- and are worth having for that reason alone. For information on Hydrangea care, click on "Growing Guide & Tips".
