What is an Endless Summer Hydrangea?

Endless Summer is a series of 5 hydrangeas that were bred for outstanding qualities such as compact size, dense form, phenomenal color, and a long bloom period as well as the ability to bloom on both old and new wood. Endless Summer Hydrangeas are great for containers. These reblooming Hydrangea Macrophylla are stunning in the landscape and have high resistance to disease.

When To Prune Endless Summer Hydrangea

Since these reblooming Hydrangeas bloom on old and new wood you have some flexibility in when you can prune. If you do not want to risk losing a single bloom prune in summer or fall when the final blooms have faded. Late winter or early spring is a great time to prune your flowering plant. Prune off dead, broken, or diseased stems when you notice them. Minor pruning of a branch or two, trimming off flowers for arrangements, and deadheading can be done anytime.

How To Prune Endless Summer Hydrangea

Endless Summer Hydrangeas are naturally compact and tidy so they do not generally require pruning. If you are in a climate where this plant dies back to the ground, prune back the dead stems before your bush emerges from dormancy. You can deadhead spent flowers for a clean look. Just trim back to the first set of leaves under the spent flower.

When To Plant Endless Summer Hydrangea

For most of the United States spring and fall are the best times to plant the Endless Summer Hydrangea. Cooler growing zones should plant at least 6 to 8 weeks prior to the ground freezing to give your newly planted hydrangea some time to establish. Growing zones 8 and 9 can plant in winter. Summer planting isn’t a great option for hydrangeas, but if you experience mild temperatures in summer in your area go for it. Just be sure to keep the soil moist. Hydrangeas love water especially when it is hot and sunny.

How To Plant Endless Summer Hydrangea Bushes

Keep your potted plant moist until you are able to plant it. Dig a hole that is about twice as wide as the pot. Put the bush in the hole making sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the existing soil line. Backfill the soil and water thoroughly. Apply a two inch mound of mulch around your shrub. Mulch helps the soil retain moisture better and reduces weeds.

How To Take Care Of Endless Summer Hydrangea

The original Endless Summer Hydrangea prefers partial shade, but the sunlight conditions vary with some in this series performing better in full sun than others. Hydrangeas love water so keep the soil moist for the first 2 to 3 months after planting and in summer for the first year especially in full sun sites in warmer climates. Feed this plant with a slow release fertilizer in spring. If you want blue flowers your soil should be acidic. To acidify your soil, amend with elemental sulfur. If you want pink flowers amend your soil with lime.
