Forever Pink Hydrangea
Compact Mophead - Great in Mass Plantings
Hydrangea - Forever Pink, Hydrangea macrophylla 'Forever Pink', is a bigleaf hydrangea cultivar that is part of the hortensia or mophead group.
It is a compact, deciduous shrub with a rounded habit which typically grows 3' tall. Forever Pink features clusters of pink or blue florets in large, rounded, 4" to 5" heads which bloom in June (often earlier than other varieties) for up to two months.
For best results grow in rich, medium moisture, well-drained soil in part shade. It tolerates full sun only if grown with constant moisture.
Soil pH affects flower color (blue color in highly acidic soils and pink color in slightly acidic to alkaline soils). Add aluminum sulfate to soil to make flowers bluer, or add lime to soil to make flowers pinker.
Group or mass Forever Pink in a sheltered location of the shrub border. Also a good specimen or accent for protected locations near homes or patio.
This popular hydrangea makes a great addition to any landscape!
