Hydrangea 'Forever & Ever' - Reliable Bloomer
One of the problems that we in the frozen north have is finding a great Hydrangea that will bloom reliably. We want, no we lust after those big mop heads of blue we see in magazines.
The answer to a gardener's prayers has arrived.
Hydrangea macrophylla 'Forever & Ever' is a new plant that blooms on new wood. This means the buds (normally produced on old wood and winterkilled) are produced in the year they flower (no winter killing!)
It also flowers repeatedly through the summer. Oh yeah!
Can you say "I really like this plant?" I can because it's sitting in my garden growing quite nicely thank you very much.
Run - don't walk - to your nearest garden shop and find one. And oh yeah, there's a pink one and a bright pink one and a red one.
And finally, yes they all turn various shades of blue if you grow them in acidic soils.
Take THAT you southerly gardeners!
