Perfect for growing along borders and in containers, this reblooming hydrangea in the Forever & Ever® series performs all season long with flowers appearing on both old and new wood. Achieve heavenly blue, full flower heads when Blue Heaven is grown in acidic soil. As with many hydrangea varieties, colors will change, fading to light pink with changes to soil pH. Trim a branch of gorgeous, dark green foliage and giant mopheads for a stunning cut-flower arrangement—or dry to create wreaths and other decorations. All hydrangeas are true garden classics with old-fashioned charm that reliably flower year after year, and adding a second flush of bloom extends their season and doubles their appeal.
