Hydrangeas

Hydrangeas are a large part of our growing operation. At a separate location in Mattapoisett, we produce containerized Hydrangeas in 3, 5, 7, 10 and 15 gallon containers with a focus on remontant (flowering on new wood) varieties such as Penny Mac, Endless Summer and Proven Winners Varieties. We also grow many older varieties such as Nikko Blue that have stood the test of time and perform well in our climate. Panicle, Climbing and Oakleaf Hydrangeas are also offered.

Please note:
Many other varieties available in limited quantities or smaller sizes are not shown on availability. Please call for more information 508.758.4409

Hydrangea macrophylla 'Endless Summer Bloomstruck'

Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Endless Summer Bloomstruck’. Our favorite Endless Summer Hydrangea and certainly the strongest rebloomer. Parentage includes both H. macrophylla and H. serrata.
