Hydrangea ‘All Summer Beauty’ macrophylla

Want the absolute best new Hydrangea breeding? Magnificent, bright-blue flowers!
‘All Summer Beauty’ macrophylla blooms on both old and new wood, stunning blue mophead hydrangea that blooms all summer long. Hydrangeas traditionally bloom on “old wood”, meaning last year’s growth but ‘All Summer Beauty’ is one of a new breed that reblooms on the current year’s growth as well! So you get a lot of blooms in early summer, followed by more blooms in late summer! It is a deciduous shrub with outstanding ornamental flowers. Unlike older varieties, this super-floriferous shrub is hardy right through zone 5 in the north. In the fall its foliage turns a bright yellow before dropping in late fall.

Hydrangeas are among the showiest of all the flowering shrubs. Spectacular in any landscape design, this dazzling shrub is versatile, vigorous and easy to cultivate. This shade of blue is rare to find in garden plants, but ‘All Summer Beauty’ delivers a deep blue that will be the focal point of your landscape. The flower color of the ‘All Summer Beauty’ hydrangea depends on the acidity level of the soil. In acidic soil, this hydrangea has deep blue flowers, while in alkaline soil, the blooms tend to be lighter, and sometimes even pink. Hydrangeas have huge bouquets of clustered flowers, in various arrangements from mophead to lacecap from summer through fall. Varieties of hydrangea differ in size of plant and flower shape, flower color, and blooming time. Hydrangeas thrive in a moist, fertile, well-drained soil in partial to full shade.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: 'All Summer Beauty' should be planted in moist, rich, well-drained soil. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. When planting your 'All Summer Beauty', the crown (where the stem meets the roots) should be placed just below ground level. Planting deeper can cause the roots to rot. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Once the shrub is placed in the hole, tamp the soil down around it and water. It is a good idea to mulch your hydrangea to help the soil to retain moisture. It should also be fertilized with a light fertilizer in March, May, and July. Hydrangeas require moderate watering during the growing season.
