Hydrangea macrophylla ‘All Summer Beauty’
at Digging Dog

Hydrangea

The name Hydrangea, means “water vessel,” given for its cup-shaped seed vessels. A genus of diverse forms, Hydrangeas are commonly found throughout Asia, from the Himalayas to Taiwan and Japan, with the exception of two species, Hydrangea arborescens and Hydrangea quercifolia, which are native to North America.

Easily grown, this shrub’s lush deciduous leaves are best suited to loose, moist soil in the shade of tall trees or on the north side of the house. If, like us, you’ve tired of the commoner sort, these delicacies will be a welcome surprise.

Superior cold hardiness and guaranteed blossoms give you good reason to invite this plucky small-sized Hydrangea into your planting bed. Since the buds are formed on new wood, the amazing bounty of 6 in. wide, buxom blue mop-heads promises to unfold each summer, regardless of the previous winter’s severity. Well-formed branches and neat, serrated broad deep green leaves bolster the long-lasting flowers that retain their opulent coloration for weeks and look classy in cut arrangements. Second-to-none where space is a premium, ‘All Summer Beauty’ requires less winter protection than most macrophylla’s, transmutes buttery yellow fall color and makes a floriferous addition to foundations or patio containers.

Blooms June–September

Size: 3' 0"–4' 0" high x 3' 0"–4' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
