Endless Summer Hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Endless Summer’)繡球花
Gorgeous small flowering shrub which bloom in old and new shoots! It makes shrub bloom early and last long for whole summer. Best grow it in full sun location in average to moist soil. This genus whole plant is toxic, just you know. Flowers is excellent for cut flower! Since its flower colour is rather sensitive to soil pH. — in acidic soil shows blue tone, in base soil shows pink or purple tone, close to neutral soil shows nearly white. You can make flower colour changes according to what you like them to by using acidic or base fertilizer.
Very hardy and very easy to grow. USDA Zones: 4-9. In fall I suggest gardener burlap the plant for earlier blooming purpose. Easy to propagate by stem cuttings or layering. Mature plant is about 3′ x 3′.
虎耳草科繡球屬的繡球花是漂亮開花性佳的小型灌木. 花色會依土壤的pH酸鹼性而改變.–酸性土壤會使花色變成藍色系的,鹼性則變成粉紅色/紫紅系的. 中性時會偏向白色. 可以使用酸性或鹼性的肥料來改變或保持你要的顏色. 我建議如果你住在冬天氣候非常冷的地區的話,最好在秋末時保護灌木以使它們在春末很快就能開花. 容易用新枝或壓條來繁殖. 成熟植株高約3呎x寬幅3呎.
