PS. Many other varieties available in limited quantities or smaller sizes are not shown on availability. Please call!
(scroll to the bottom for pics from the farm)
Hydrangea arborescens 'Annabelle'. H. arborescens produce flowers on new growth. In fact, many gardners cut 'Annabelle' back severely each spring to encourage dense growth and increase flowering. Giant white flowers measure up to 10" across. Can be grown in zones 3 and 4 where H. macrophylla will not reliably flower. Grows to 6-7' tall.
Hydrangea arborescens 'Incrediball'. A Proven Winners/Color Choice variety. Very similar to H. Annabelle with larger flowers and strong upright stems.
Hydrangea macrophylla 'All Summer Beauty'. A very reliable hydrangea here in southeastern Massachusetts. Sky-blue flowers are produced on a vigorously growing shrub that will reach about 6 feet in height. This hydrangea shows some ability to produce flowers on new wood, so some repeat flowering occurs all summer long!
Hydrangea macrophylla 'Alpenglow'. One of the best and most reliable varieties we grow. Shiny deep green foliage on a compact full plant. Produces abundant red mophead blooms. Flowers will be purple in acid soils or if aluminum sulfate is added. Grows to 3-4' tall and wide.
Hydrangea macrophylla 'Ayesha'. Sometimes called tha popcorn hydrangea because the open blooms resemble partially open popcorn kernels. A vigorous grower with glossy green foliage. A bit on the tender side as flowers are produced only on the terminal buds and these can be damaged by frosts. Plant in warmer protected areas.
Hydrangea macrophylla 'Blue Wave' . A classic cool blue lacecap hydrangea with glossy green foliage. A vigorous grower to about 5' tall. Will grow quite wide if given space.
Hydrangea macrophylla 'David Ramsey'. A remontant, (reblooming) cultivar very similar to 'Endless Summer', 'Penny Mac', and 'Oak Hill'. Great for colder climates thru zone 4 as this hydrangea continuously produces flowers on new growth. Flat green foliage on a somewhat compact plant up to 4' tall.
Hydrangea macrophylla 'Early Sensation'. A Great Scapes favorite! Compact growing to 4'. In New England soils Early Sensation produces vibrant blue flowers over clean heavy textured foliage. Blooms tend to be a little flatter than most macrophyllas. It has proven to be a very reliable hydrangea.
Hydrangea macrophylla 'Bailmer' 'Endless Summer' Plant Pat. # 15298. This is the plant that revolutionized the hydrangea world. Discovered by plantsman Michael Dirr it has the ability to continuously produce blooms on new growth. Regardless of severe winters or late frosts it will always produce flowers. Several other hydrangeas have since been discovered that share this reblooming trait. We carry the original 'Endless Summer' as well as a few other very similar varieties, ('David Ramsey', Oak Hill' and 'Penny Mac') While the performance is very similar, the retail demand for 'Endless Summer' remains strong due to an agressive marketing campaign.
Hydrangea macrophylla 'Enziandom'. Also known as Gentian Dome. The most vivid blue hydrangea we grow. Unfortunately not as bud hardy as other macrophyllas. Does well in well protected sites. Tends to be weak stemmed in a container but is a real showstopper when established in the landscape. Grows to about 4' tall and wide.
Hydrangea macrophylla 'Everlasting Revolution'. One of a series of reblooming hydrangeas from Plants Nouveau. Revolution is a compact mophead with blue flowers, (in acid soils), Grows to only 2-3' tall and wide. The Everlasting Hydrangeas all have flowers that change color as they age staying attractive for months. Hopefully this plant is as good as advertised. A dwarf, reblooming blue mophead will be a welcome addition to our collection. (Limited availability summer 2013).
We will also have limited availability of 'Everlasting Jade', 'Everlasting Garnet' and 'Everlasting Amethyst'
Hydrangea macrophylla 'Forever Pink'. This is a compact growing hydrangea with nice shiny dark green foliage. Bright pink mophead flowers adorn the plant from early summer through fall. Mature size about 3' tall by 3' wide.
Hydrangea macrophylla 'Hortensis Compacta'. A bit of a mystery in the industry. A plant that is remembered by many but very hard to find. More compact than the typical mophead with smaller flowers. Color varies from pink to purplish. A 10 year old plant here at the nursery is just under 4' tall and is covered with both pink and purple flowers each year. A very vigorous grower when young betraying its ultimate small stature. (Sold out Spring 2014).
Hydrangea macrophylla 'Masja'. A very reliable variety with nice deep green foliage and deep red or purple mophead blooms. One of our best performers. Grows to 4' tall.
Hydrangea macrophylla 'Mathilda Gutges'. A favorite of our friends at Hydrangea Farm Nursery on Nantucket. A medium growing hydrangea that produces deep blue, ( in acid soils), mophead flowers. Does best in a sheltered spot with a bit of shade. A real blooming machine if it is properly sited.
Hydrangea macrophylla 'Nikko Blue'. A time tested favorite here in souteastern Massachusetts. Sky blue mophead flowers on a vigorous plant with pale green foliage. Great at the seashore. A very reliable bloomer. Grows to 6' tall
Hydrangea macrophylla 'Penny Mac'. Discovered by Penny MacHenry who was a founder of the American Hydrangea Society. Very similar to 'Endless Summer' in habit. Hydrangea breeders are having good luck with Penny Mac crosses and we will be seeing some great new hydrangeas introduced from Penny Mac parentage in the coming years.
Hydrangea serrata 'Coreula Lace'. This is also known locally as the 'Nantucket Lacecap' hydrangea. A common sight on Cape Cod and the Islands, this vigorous grower blooms prolifically from summer through fall. Flowers may be pink but are usually blue in acid New England soils. Upright habit to 6' tall.
Hydrangea paniculata 'Baby Lace'. Petite lacy white flowers cover this small growing plant in late summer. From the Gardeners Confidence collection. Grows to 3-1/2' tall and wide. Mounding habit with flowers held upright.
Hydrangea paniculata 'Limelight'. A Proven Winners/Color Choice variety. Lime-green cone shaped flowers produced aplenty on a very vigorous shrub growing to 6-8' Very easy to grow even in zone 3 and 4. Trim in spring for fuller growth.
Hydrangea paniculata 'Little Lamb'. Another Proven Winners/Color Choice variety. A sweet new compact hardy Hydrangea from Jelena DeBelder of Belgium. Little Lamb is unique because it's flower petals are the smallest of any Hydrangea. These diminutive little flowers are held in tight but delicate little flower heads that look like little dancing lambs floating above this compact shrub. This special shrub blooms in mid-summer and last into autumn. Flowers fade to shades of antique pinks and purples. One of our favorites. Grows to 5-6'
Hydrangea paniculata 'Little Lime'. A new dwarf form of the ever popular 'Limelight' hydrangea, Little Lime sports the same great flowers and coloration as 'Limelight' but in a smaller package. At one third the size of traditional hardy hydrangeas, this new variety fits well into any landscape. Summer flowers open soft green and turn pink and burgundy in fall.
Hydrangea paniculata 'Phantom' A fantastic new paniculata. Immense white flowers on a vigorous shrub. Grows to 7-8'. Huge flowers up to to 18" in length fade to shade of pink and purple.
Hydrangea paniculata 'Pinky Winky'. A Proven Winners/Color Choice variety. Pinky Winky has an unusual name, and an even more unusual flower. The large white panicles open in mid to late summer, and as summer turns to fall the florets at the base of the panicles turn pink. The flower panicles continue to grow, producing new white florets at the tip. The result is spectacular two-toned flower panicles that can reach up to 16 inches in length! Grows to 6-7' tall.
