Not really. Just two collages highlighting the Endless Summer Hydrangea. My soil is neutral to alkaline, and unless I add acidifier the bloom colors will not be blue. This year has been extra wet and hydrangeas love the water, so bloom has been good. 2010 has not been the norm, the mophead hydrangeas are much more happy than usual.
I very much like ‘Endless Summer’, so I think it is one of the best for Central to Western Ohio. Eastern and Southern parts of the state have more acidic soils and more reliable moisture- hydrangeas probably don’t struggle as much for you. I always have to water throughout the summer; it even wilted once this summer.
Enjoy the photos.

The “more pink” color of 2010 is not a photo difference,’ Endless Summer‘ last year was more lavender bluish, this year it is a shade of pink.
