Do you love hydrangeas but think you can't grow them here in zone 3? Think again! Bailey's Nursery in Minnesota holds the patent on the Endless Summer Hydrangea of which there are currently three varieties available. There's the original Endless Summer which blooms either pink or blue depending on the ph of your soil. If your soil is acidic, the blooms will be blue. If your soil is alkaline, the blooms will be pink. Also in the series is the Blushing Bride which starts white and as the flower matures it becomes pink. Both these introductions are mophead varieties in that the blossoms are clustered into a ball shape. The newest variety available is called Twist 'n Shout. I am excited about this one because it is the first in this series with a lacecap flower! To date, it is difficult to find a lacecap hydrangea that will tolerate the cold winters here but this one is promising. A lacecap has a flatter flower head of clustered blossoms. I have the original Endless Summer hydrangea and now I have got to try Twist 'n Shout!
