Plant of the Week
Endless Summer® Hydrangea
ANNICK'S PICK: ENDLESS SUMMER® HYDRANGEA
Endless Summer® Hydrangea is amazing because it has a noticeably long bloom season! Since it blooms on both old and new wood, you will get abundant flowers on this head-turning Hydrangea from May through September. You’ll appreciate this plant for years to come because it’s cold hardy to -30 degrees F.
Avoid afternoon sun
Provide moist, well-drained soil
This plant is 30% off during our Fall Sale, September 1-October 1.
PLANT PAIRINGS FOR ENDLESS SUMMER® HYDRANGEA:
Smaller spring-blooming bulbs can be planted in the fall to offer cheerful color under and around Hydrangea. Try Galanthus (snowdrop), Anemone blanda, and Crocus.
Mt. Vernon Dwarf English Laurel

A low-growing, evergreen groundcover with striking, variegated leaves that take on a hint of pink throughout the winter. Euonymus grows well in sun or shade and grows slowly to 2' x 3'.
A beautiful, shade-loving perennial with dramatic, fuzzy silver leaves. In late spring, Brunnera sprouts delicate sprays of blue flowers. Grows to 1' x 2'. Slug resistant!
