Huge Flowers All Summer Long in the Shade Hydrangeas are the stars of any shade garden. Endless Summer® Blushing Bride Hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Blushing Bride’) is a standout among the stars. This lovely shrub produces big mop-head type blooms – and when we say ‘big’ we mean BIG – up to 8″ in diameter! The beautiful blooms start out white and slowly transition into a light pink blush as the flowers mature. If the flowers alone aren’t enough to entice you to plant this beauty in your garden, another great quality of Blushing Bride Hydrangea is it’s unique ability to bloom on both old and new wood, ensuring consistent flowering year after year, no pruning necessary! The Blushing Bride Hydrangea foliage is a deep, dark green on long, strong branches. The strong branches are a bonus because they keep the Blushing Bride Hydrangea sturdy and upright, unlike some hydrangeas that tend to droop over the season with the heavy flower heads. Blushing Bride Hydrangea will rebloom all summer long, too, keeping your yard and your vases full of those huge amazing blooms. Like most hydrangeas, soil acidity will affect the bloom color. The blooms start out white and they will fade to light pink in alkaline soil and light blue in acidic soil, so adjust your soil accordingly. Use the Blushing Bride Hydrangea as a focal point or accent plant in just about any shady setting! * Blooms all season * Consistent rebloomer * Huge flowers!.
