Early Sensation Forever and Ever® Hydrangea

Description
The original Forever & Ever Hydrangea boasts large clusters of blooms that turn either pink or blue depending on the soil pH. Enjoy an abundance of flowers blanketing this hydrangea, even after harsh northern winters, as hardy blooms appear on both old and new wood. Clusters of blooms and even the big, deep green foliage, are all great additions to both cut- and dried-flower arrangements. Attractive in a border or bed, and its compact growth habit also makes for a good container planting. Be sure to check your soil's pH level if you're looking for a specific bloom color. About 5.2-5.5 produces blue flowers, about 6.0-6.2 produces pink flowers. Hydrangea macrophylla 'Early Sensation'
