Keep summer around even long after it's over with the Endless Summer Hydrangea.

Blooming early in the summer season, this incredibly beautiful, frost-proof plant will give the warmth of summer to your garden with lovely blooms up until Thanksgiving!

Compare that to other typical hydrangeas that only bloom for a few weeks before withering for the year. And these colorful blooms are gigantic--almost as big as a soccer ball!

This versatile plant will produce a parade of flowers whether planted in shade or full sun. Hydrangeas make great hedges, line a fence or walk way with them. 

So lovely are the blooms that many enthusiasts gather them to create their own indoor floral arrangements.

The great news is after clipping, you'll get even more flowers!

Change the color of the flowers you produce simply by adjusting the pH in your soil. For blue, adjust soil to a higher acidity. And if hot pink is your preference, just go to more alkaline soil.

So if you can't get enough of your favorite season, the Endless Summer Hydrangea is definitely for you.

It's Easy to Plant your Endless Summer Hydrangea

Specific Directions for Endless Summer Hydrangea
Place your Endless Summer Hydrangeas in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Although Hydrangeas can tolerate full sun they prefer partial shade and afternoon shade is ideal. Plant your Endless Summer Hydrangeas two feet apart for a hedge.

Endless Summer Hydrangeas will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Water your Hydrangeas twice a week during the summer. Every Spring fertilize your Endless Summer Hydrangeas with a slow release fertilize that's high in phosphorous to encourage more blooms.

Early every Spring your Endless Summer Hydrangea will start blooming and the blooms will last until the Fall! To change your blooms to pink keep the pH balance of your soil around 6.5 - 7.0, raise your pH balance by adding lime to your soil. For blue blooms your soil will need to be more acidic with a pH balance around 5.0 - 5.8. Add sulfur to lower your pH balance.

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Endless Summer Hydrangea.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Endless Summer Hydrangea gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Endless Summer Hydrangea again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Love these plants. I bought six of them last summer to border my front porch. They all survived the winter, and have double the blooms compared to last year! Only complaint is it took longer to receive my order because it was not processed properly. I called the company and they sent the plants right away

What attention do you need to give to the plant after bloom color disapearsWhat attention do give to the plant after bloom color disappears?
A shopper on Jun 7, 2014
Best Answer: My endless summer hydrangea actually is so low maintenance that I just pruned the stems that dried out and did regular watering of the plant which is once weekly during fall/winter/spring seasons and twice weekly during the hot summer time... voila, it has not failed to give me lilac colored blooms since!! But I also made sure that I added good quality peat moss when I first planted it and put good amount of mulch around it for extra TLC!

Should I cut the flowers off as I prepare the hydrangeas for winter? I live in Racine, Wisconsin, Zone 5. Before I cover the plants with a biodegradable covering (filled with fallen leaves from trees for winter insulation), should I, or should I not, cut off the blooms? Some are still in color and most are fading to white/brown. Thank you.
Joe K on Oct 29, 2014
Best Answer: I would lean towards cutting off the blooms in the Fall. I would worry the nutrients sent to them, if left on the plant, may comprise the hardiness of the remaining plant through the Winter.

when do I fertilize the endless hydrangea?
A shopper on Aug 24, 2014
Best Answer: You generally would fertilize hydrangeas when you would normally fertilize most perennials, during the start of their most active growing season in the spring. But remember to research the best type of fertilizer for them, some shrub fertilizers only support vigorous foliage growth, versus blooming habit.

Today we received a pink plant, When can we make make soil more acid so we can have blue flowers?
This is a new question
Mark Bisanzo on Jun 5, 2014
Best Answer: To change from blue to pink you need to change from an acid soil to an alkaline one. In other words, you need to raise the pH level of the soil. This can be accomplished by applying dolomitic lime several times a year. You will have to test your soil and aim for a pH of about (6.0 to 6.2).

Changing the blooms to blue will take a “lowering” of the soils pH to a level of about (5.2-5.5). Using a soil acidifier will lower your soil’s pH for beautiful blue blooms. It is advised that you should contact your local garden center for a recommendation on acidifying the soil in your area but a good hint is adding a large amount of organic matter such as peat moss or composted leaves around the plant which will acidify the soil as it breaks down.

planted one 3 years ago and it has never bloomed should I cut it back in the fall to promote flowers in the spring ?
A shopper on Aug 10, 2014
Best Answer: Hydrangeas won't boom if planted in the wrong zone where they get too cold in the winter, or if they're suddenly hit by a late Spring Frost. Hydrangeas are suited for zones 4 - 9. It's best to prune in the Spring to remove dead tips from the Winter.

Fertilize your hydrangeas once or twice in the summer prior to August. Apply a good time release fertilizer 1-2 times a year. Fertilize in zones 6-8 in May and July. If you live in zones 5 or north, one good fertilizing in June will suffice. Discontinue fertilizing if the plant appears wilted or unhealthy. Restore the Hydrangea back to health before any additional applications.

will the deer resist this plant?
Kathy L on Aug 3, 2014
Best Answer: Why no plant is deer proof and deer will eat anything if food is sparse, this plant isn't their first choice. Deer prefer to eat other foliage instead of the Endless Summer Hydrangea therefore it's deer resistant. If you're worried you can always get natural deer repellents.

once the blooms look like they are done(brownish on top) do you cut that entire bloom off so the plant will produce new blooms?
A shopper on Jul 18, 2014
Best Answer: I do sometimes (just to make it look nicer), but it doesn't seem to make a difference in blooming. I know for a lot of flowering annuals, removing spent blossoms encourages reblooming, but not sure it applies to hydrangeas.

my hydrangea is 4 years old and has never bloomed. what is the cause of this?
A shopper on Aug 4, 2014
Best Answer: Your Endless Summer Hydrangea may need to be fertilized. Fertilize your hydrangea with a slow release fertilize that's high in phosphorous. Prune any old canes or dead shoots in the Spring. Also your Hydrangea may not be getting enough sunlight to bloom. Another factor that impacts hydrangeas is the weather, late frosts at the end of Spring will prevent hydrangeas from blooming.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
