Plant Patent Applied For. cultivar name:SMHPLQF. One of the first paniculatas to bloom, this Proven Winners®/Color Choice® variety... is remarkable for its diminutive frame and its fluffy flower spikes, the white florets accented with deep carmine tones, regardless of soil pH! With blooms on old and new wood alike over a long season, this is a little workhorse in the cutting garden! Little Quick Fire? is a gardeners dream come true. This very vigorous, lovely shrub sets masses of white-to-rosy-pink flowers at the first breath of hot weather, and continues the show through summer and into fall.

Discovered in an Anna, Illinois, garden, Annabelle is perhaps the most popular old-fashioned flowering shrub grown in American gar...dens. Once established, it produces enormous, 12-inch, globe-shaped flowerheads of snowy white starting in early summer and increasing in size until mid- to late summer -- truly spectacular! Growing to 4 feet high and wide, it is a splendid landscape plant that never gets out of bounds and complements every other color in the garden beautifully. It thrives in shade, but also tolerates heat and humidity. Very easy to grow once established, it is a lovely source of fresh and dried arrangements as well as a useful border, hedge, foundation, or accent planting. H. arborescens is a native species, far more cold-hardy than most other Hydrangea species. Recently another cultivar has been added to the family: spectacular pink-flowered Invincibelle Spirit. Try them together for a breathtaking pink-and-white hedge, border, or accent planting! Zones 4-9. read more

Plant Patent Applied For. Cultivar name: Minsens Love vines and climbers but dont have the blazing sunshine required for most of t...hem to be successful? Rose Sensation? is the solution, a False Climbing Hydrangea that loves shade and flowers heavily from late spring into midsummer! Deciduous and very fast-growing, this vining shrub takes off and makes itself at home against your north-facing wall, up those shady arbors and trellises, and through chain-link fences. Its not invasive in the least, but it needs space -- expect it to eventually reach 40 to 50 feet long and 6 to 9 feet wide. It needs no pruning, but if this size is a little more than you bargained for, cut it back in late winter and it will stay smaller and even more lush and dense. The best part of this climber, though, is its blooms. They look like lacecap Hydrangeas, with larger florets surrounding an inner cluster of tiny sterile flowers. The leaf-like outer florets are pink at the center, shading to creamy white, while the inner flowers are ivory to palest green. There will be nothing else in the garden like them, and youll love cutting a big armful for the vase, too! The foliage on Rose Sensation is deep green and very abundant, keeping this climber attractive whether or not the blooms are present. A deciduous plant, it looks fresh and vibrant from spring through fall. Find a place of honor and prepare to be wowed by the lush, verdant transformation of the shade garden by Rose Sensation?.

Plant Patent #12,874. This new Hydrangea is so amazing that it might as well be a whole new type of shrub! Not only is it much, MU...CH cold-hardier than most -- happy all the way through zone 4 in the north! -- but its blooms open green and then progress through 4 different colors! And when the flowers finally stop arriving in fall, the foliage leaps into the limelight by turning bright red! Limelight begins its show in early to midsummer, when plentiful flower clusters of rich chartreuse-to-lime arise all over the large shrub. As they mature, they first turn pure white, then darken to all shades of pink, finally settling on a rich rosy hue! Cut them at any point in the color show and theyll remain that shade, of course -- so you can get a 4-color bouquet from a single shrub, and a fully-blooming plant has every color present at once! Folks, Hydrangeas just dont do this -- Limelight is extraordinary! Now, the flowers arise in big, fluffy domes packed with little florets, and when I tell you that these domes reach 8 inches across, youre just going to have to take my word. The most remarkable thing to me is not the size of each cluster but the NUMBER of them -- they dot this shrub like dewdrops at dawn! And they keep arising for months -- well into fall in most climates. Now thats flower power and then some! But autumn turns out to be a big show no matter what the blooms are doing, because with the first really cold weather, the big, deep green leaves burnish bright red! When you take into consideration the size of this shrub -- 6 to 8 feet high and wide -- you can imagine what an attention-getting spectacle this is in the lightly shaded to sunny garden! (At this rate, the Japanese Maples will have to hide their heads!) And the last blooms dry beautifully right on the plant, so you can enjoy the highly unusual sight of dusty rose flowers on a bright red-leafed shrub! Now, Limelight is more than a pretty face. Its easy to grow, and once established is one of the best choices for xeriscapic (water-saving) gardens. It also puts up with heat, humidity, poor soil, and a bunch of other annoyances. Just give it plenty of water the first year or two to get it feeling at home in your garden, then leave it be. Youll be astonished at how carefree and lovely it remains, year after year! If youre looking for good things to plant around Limelight, the possibilities are limitless. I like the look of Daylilies, with flowers so different in shape and texture from the Hydrangeas. Phlox is also lovely for the first part of the months-long bloom season, while late-summer standouts such as Blanket Flower are ready to carry the show into fall. Space these shrubs about 6 feet apart in sun to light shade. You are in for many years of unrivalled beauty from this exciting newcomer! Zones 4-6 in full sun/Zones 7-8 in part shade. read more

Add the fact that ...these particular flowers open lime-green, then quickly turn creamy white, soft pink, and finally darkest red, and you have the makings of a showstopping garden or container display. Welcome Strawberry Sundae?, a compact, heavy-blooming, easy-care PeeGee Hydrangea! Strawberry Sundae? is just 4 to 5 feet tall and not quite as wide, just right for the foundation or driveway planting as well as the partly shaded border. You could even put it in a large container -- its that compact! Well-branched, rounded, and bushy, it makes a huge impression in not much space, with large, bright green, toothy leaves that keep it handsome long before and after bloomtime. But the flowers completely steal the show on this beauty. Beginning in early summer, long, thick, pointed wands begin arising, packed with florets. They keep coming for several months, so youll see all flower colors present at the same time on the shrub. Cut all you like for fresh or dried bouquets, but save a few for garden enjoyment too. Magnificent! This hydrangea is a PeeGee type, one of the cold-hardiest of all, and also very tolerant of urban pollution. Of course, like all hydrangeas, it loves moisture (that hydra in the name is the tip-off!), so plant it in good, continuously moist garden soil, or water the container regularly. Untroubled by pests and diseases, it is among the easiest of shrubs to grow. Give it full sunshine only in the northern edge of its hardiness range, opting for dappled or afternoon shade farther south and west. Strawberry Sundae? comes to us from French breeder Jean Renault, who is also responsible for the larger, weeping-habit Vanilla Strawberry®. Long-blooming, ever-changing, and easy to grow -- you just cant beat PeeGees! Zones 4-8. read more

Everything that is new and wonderful about Hydrangea can be found in All Summer Beauty, a delightful new Bigleaf mophead. Unlike o...lder varieties, this super-floriferous shrub is hardy right through zone 5 in the north. And because it blooms on both old and new wood (well explain that in a second!), it wont be nipped back by a late frost or freak cold snap! This compact, deciduous shrub is among the most free-flowering Hydrangeas we have ever grown, and thats not just because its season is so long. Well-branched and vigorous, it sets masses of big round snowballs of pink (in alkaline or lime soil) or blue (in acid soil) among its toothy, bright green leaves. The larger blooms reach 6 inches in diameter, the smaller about 4 inches, but all are magnificent in fresh or dried bouquets as well as on the plant. Very long-lasting, they lose their color only very gradually, so you can leave them on the shrub through autumn if you like. The flowers begin in early summer in most climates (sometimes late spring in hotter areas), and thats as far as it goes for most Hydrangeas -- one big bumper crop and its done. Thats because Hydrangea traditionally blooms on old wood, meaning last years growth. But All Summer Beauty is one of a new breed that reblooms on the current years growth as well! So ideally you get your usual heavy show in early summer, followed by a big encore in late summer! Where this rebloom really comes in handy is in the north, where late frosts can freeze all the flower buds on the old wood. Even if this happens, youre guaranteed at least one good showing on the current years growth! Gardening offers few certainties, but this is a nice little insurance policy! And then of course in those years when spring is mild, you have two full seasons of bloom. Cant beat it with a stick! All Summer Beauty has one more trick up its sleeve: its foliage turns bright yellow before dropping in late fall. This is nice. Its not the breathtaking show that some plants put on, but its more than most Hydrangeas can muster, and youll love the look of these big, serrated leaves turning buttery yellow in the cool days of early fall. Expect All Summer Beauty to reach 3 to 4 feet high and 3 to 5 feet wide. You can put it in a big container, if you like, where it will grow a bit smaller. Its also terrific in the foundation, because even though its deciduous, the branchy upright silhouette in winter is interesting, and the flowers last forever in summer. It needs partial shade in the south, but does well in full sun farther north. And take that Hydr- prefix seriously in its name: keep it watered well, but with good soil drainage!

An extremely aptly named Hydrangea, Tiny Tuff Stuff? is small enough for containers and covers itself with elegant, delicate-looki...ng blooms, but it offers a very tough nature. Very bud-hardy, it produces an abundance of lacecap blooms made up of doubled sepals. This robust rebloomer starts flowering in late spring, continuing into mid-fall. The flowers start off from blue to pink to white, aging to an attractive pink and tipping down in a very distinctive arching fashion. It looks fantastic in any style garden, no matter how refined or sophisticated. The Mountain Hydrangea grows to a wonderfully manageable size of 18 to 24 inches high and wide, making it ideal for even the smallest garden. It will be happy in full sun or part shade and flowers on both new and old wood. Zones 5-9. read more

Plant Patent #20,176. Cultivar name: PIIHM-1. Here it is -- the one and only reblooming lacecap Hydrangea, and it can be yours! (O...rder now, though. Were seriously low on quantity already.) The first lacecap cultivar in the amazing Endless Summer® series of reblooming Hydrangeas from Dr. Michael Dirr, this ultra-compact shrub is just the right size for large containers as well as the shade border. It will regale you with two seasons of beautiful blooms every year -- and if you live in an area where springs can be late and unexpectedly frosty, it will guarantee you a late-summer to fall flower show even if the first round of blooms gets nipped in the bud! Bred from Penny Mac x Lady in Red, Twist-n-Shout® comes by its good looks, vigorous growth, and dependable rebloom honestly. Just 3 to 5 feet high and wide, it leafs out in spring with a profusion of bright green foliage, very showy and dense. By early summer the first blooms are already opening, each with an inner circlet of tiny fertile flowers surrounded by a large, loose ray of sterile florets. Both the flowers and the florets may be pink or blue, depending on the pH level of the soil. And as if all this color werent enough, the flower stems are a bright pinkish-red! Talk about gilding the Hydrangea! The second wave of flowers occurs toward autumn, just when the garden is looking a bit threadbare and between times. These flowers are superb in fresh or dried arrangements, and also mature beautifully right on the plant, drying into antique hues as autumn becomes colder. . . . But still theres more! The foliage gets into the act on Twist-n-Shout®, turning from green to orange, then rosy-red, and finally maroon in autumn. This is truly a multi-color, multi-season, multi-appeal shrub, and we highly recommend that you reserve one immediately for your garden. It may just be your favorite new plant of 2011 . . . and if you want, get all of its siblings, too: Endless Summer®, white-to-pink Blushing Bride, and rosy-pink H. arborescens Bella Anna?.

Cultivar name: Lynn. Its the breeding breakthrough weve been waiting for! Just 2 to 3 feet high and wide, this container-sized Hyd...rangea blooms on both old and new wood, giving northern gardeners a lovely season and southern and western gardeners 2 glorious bloomtimes every year. But thats not even the innovation: its that the blooms arent the usual mophead, summer snowball rounded type. Theyre the far more unusual lacecap variety, with an outer ring of large open florets circling a core of tiny closed flowers! Now there is absolutely no barrier to growing Hydrangea wherever you live, for this super-compact variety thrives in containers that you can bring indoors for winter! You will love these blooms. The petals are triangular, for an exotic sort of look, and they will be colored with a rosy pink or deep blue, depending on the pH of your soil. They surround a big bouquet of inner flowers that may remain fairly green, with flashes of blue or pink. But either way, the big outer petals gradually mature to bright green : the complete opposite of the usual pattern for mopheads, where the flowers start green and then get their color! The foliage is large, toothy, and bright green on this tight little shrub, banking the blooms beautifully. Lets Dance? Starlight really knows how to fill a container, with giant blooms and big leaves tumbling from all sides. Of course, it doesnt have to go in containers (except north of zone 5, for winter protection), and it makes a fine foreground planting for the foundation, shrub border, and larger Hydrangea varieties. If you like lacecap Starlight, you must grow it among its cousin mophead Moonlight. Lets Dance? Starlight is the ideal Hydrangea for zones 5 and 6, where many other varieties suffer in late spring frosts. In these climates, even if a late frost should freeze the buds of the first early- to midsummer blooms, a second set will appear in summer for late season flowering. Thats the beauty of reblooming Hydrangea: it guarantees you at least one fabulous season every year! This mini shrub thrives in moist soil in full sun in the North, partial shade farther south and west. The Hydra part of its name indicates its love of water, but it needs good soil drainage too, so it is not a shrub for boggy or wet soils. Keep it well watered, especially during the summer heat, and it will grow and bloom for decades. Certain to become your favorite shrub, this versatile little beauty deserves a special place in your landscape! Zones 5-9. read more

Plant Patent Applied For. CBRAF. Cultivar name: Abetwo. Your eyes do not deceive you -- the flowers really are more than a foot lo...ng and perfectly round on this stunning new Hydrangea! A new selection of a native species, this is without a doubt the largest-flowered mophead type in the world, its blooms approaching the size of beachballs! Incrediball® arose, like so many great inventions, as an accident -- it was part of a breeding program designed to improve the stem strength of Hydrangea, so that the blooms would stand up rather than flopping. Well, it worked -- but who could have imagined the blooms would emerge so enormous and so packed with florets? It is descended from Hydrangea Annabelle, a beloved favorite for decades, but each of Incrediballs® flowerheads contains 4 TIMES THE NUMBER OF BLOOMS as Annabelles. Its simply amazing. The blooms open a very pale shade of green to cream, maturing to pure white. Like most Hydrangea, they begin blooming when the warm summer weather arrives, and continue all season, often generously extending into fall. Cut the blooms for fresh or dried arrangements; they last for months indoors, their petals acquiring a lovely papery texture. Incrediball® reaches 4 to 5 feet high and wide in sun (in the north) to partial shade (farther south). A moisture lover, it should receive regular watering to grow and bloom its best. You will find it easy to grow, eager to bloom, and breathtaking in the foundation, as a hedge, or in the border. read more

Plant Patent #22,696. Cultivar Name: Hokomano. Perfect for a container, shady border, or even a vase, Everlasting® Noblesse boasts... large, full blooms colored a refreshing mixture of snow white, celery green, and pure violet. These mophead blooms are outstanding, each one their very own bouquet! They open white with spots of bright purple on their eyes, then mature to more of a whitewashed green with some tinges of pink. The sepals add lovely texture to the display with their ruffles and their crenate margins. And since foliage is hidden within and beneath the mopheads, there are few leaves at the base of the plant: the result is an incredible hydrangea that looks like it is almost all flower! The Everlasting® series is remarkable for how strong and flop-proof the stems are and, of course, for the length of the bloom season. Noblesse gets started as early as May and reblooms on into September!

Hybridized by T. Yamamoto in Japan, this reblooming lacecap hybrid is the kind of cultivar that early hydrangea breeders would have killed to get their hands on. This compact, disciplined variety will astound you with its lush foliage, tireless blooms, and exceptional tolerance of Hydrangeas biggest enemies: cold and mildew! H. macrophylla usually blooms on old wood, developing its buds in fall. These buds require protection through frigid weather if they are to survive and open up in spring. But Star Gazer is the exception to this rule! Blooming on old and new wood alike, Star Gazer is much more forgiving of harsh winters and ill-timed pruning than other Hydrangeas: it simply insists on blooming! Plant Star Gazer in rich soil in a shady, well-drained spot. It will tolerate more sun if the soil is kept sufficiently moist. Hydrangea is famous for its reaction to soil pH: if your soil is acidic, Star Gazer will produces blue picotee blooms, while if your soil is basic the flowers will be pink and white.

Plant Patent Applied For. Cultivar name: Hokomathyst Changing from solid green to either fuchsia or violet-blue with green edges a...nd then finally to rich lime green, the petals on this new reblooming mophead are different nearly every time you look at them! Held on big, rounded trusses all over super-compact plants, these flowers are showstopping in garden, container, and vase! Everlasting? is a Dutch series, and it was originally bred for the cut-flower market, so the emphasis is entirely on the blooms. The flower stems are stronger and straighter than those of many other Hydrangeas, ensuring that the blooms wont flop or twist. The flowers are ultra long-lasting and quite large, especially when seen on the plant, which is just 3 to 4 feet high and wide. But the best part is the color changes these blooms undergo. The beginning and ending color is solid green -- pale as the flowers first open, vivid lime as they mature! Between these two cycles is a period of bright interior petal color: violet-blue in acidic soils and fuchsia-pink in alkaline. The green remains on the petal edges throughout, creating a wonderful bicolored look that is different from any other Hydrangea we know! And just as a bonus, this is a reblooming variety, with a heavy flowering period in late spring and early summer followed by an encore in autumn. If you live in an area where late frosts and dropping temperatures have nipped your Hydrangea blooms in the bud, youll be assured of at least one season of color every year! And elsewhere, you get a fall wash of color to complement the long early-season bloom. Give this mophead consistently moist soil and a bit of shade in every climate except the most northern. Do not allow it to dry out completely, but make sure the soil drainage is good. Amethyst grows quickly and easily, its large, toothy leaves keeping the shrub handsome even when it isnt blooming. This may just become your favorite Hydrangea of all time! Zones 5-9. read more
