Spread: 4 feet

Sunlight:  full sun  partial shade 

Hardiness Zone: 5a

Other Names: French Hydrangea, Bigleaf Hydrangea

Description:

A compact hydrangea that tends to bloom on old wood, resulting in an incredibly long-lasting performance; massive ball-shaped mophead flowers are rich blue in acidic soil, blending into shades of soft pink in more alkaline soils

Ornamental Features:

All Summer Beauty Hydrangea features bold balls of blue flowers with shell pink overtones at the ends of the branches from early summer to mid fall. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It has dark green foliage throughout the season. The glossy pointy leaves do not develop any appreciable fall color. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

Landscape Attributes:

All Summer Beauty Hydrangea is a multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with a more or less rounded form. Its relatively coarse texture can be used to stand it apart from other landscape plants with finer foliage.

This shrub will require occasional maintenance and upkeep, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. It has no significant negative characteristics.

All Summer Beauty Hydrangea is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • General Garden Use
  • Mass Planting
  • Hedges/Screening
  • Container Planting

Plant Characteristics:

All Summer Beauty Hydrangea will grow to be about 3 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 4 feet. It tends to be a little leggy, with a typical clearance of 1 feet from the ground. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 20 years.

This shrub does best in full sun to partial shade. It requires an evenly moist well-drained soil for optimal growth. It is not particular as to soil type, but has a definite preference for acidic soils. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments, and will benefit from being planted in a relatively sheltered location. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in both summer and winter to conserve soil moisture and protect it in exposed locations or colder zones.

This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
