Everlasting Ocean Hydrangea
Waves of color all season long!
When you think of hydrangeas, you may just think of the garishly bright pinks and blues in your grandmothers garden. If you’re looking for something different, might we suggest that you give Everlasting Ocean Hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Hortmoc’ PPAF) a try?
The big mopheads are consistent bloomers. The flower colors begin softly, not in garish pinks or blues, but with fringed, creamy pink or pale lilac florets. Slowly the petals begin to get celery-green highlights while the pink and lilac deepen to rose and lavender. Eventually the green color moves from the base of each petal and the highlights begin to change the entire bloom bright lime green with vivid pink edges. Talk about an ocean of change! The flowers look completely different.
Ocean is a re-bloomer that is very compact, which makes it great for containers, borders and cutting gardens. Everlasting is a Dutch series of hydrangeas developed specifically for the cut flower market, so you know that the blooms must be spectacular to meet such high expectations. The stem are strong and straight and are bred not to flop or twist. The flowers are super long-lasting and very big, especially when the shrub itself only grows 3 to 4 feet tall and wide!
You’ll want to give Ocean plenty of water, some well-drained soil and a little bit of shade for it to perform its best. Just a little love will give you a shrub that grows quickly and easily. The serrated leaves keep the shrub looking handsome, even when the flowers aren’t in bloom yet.
We are pretty sure that once you are caught in Ocean’s undertow, it will probably become one of your favorite garden plants! Order yours today.
