‘Tis the season for big blooming hydrangeas, and we can’t get enough. There’s a lacecap bigleaf hydrangea that’s calling our names, and it belongs in your garden. Endless Summer Twist-n-Shout® hydrangeas are showy, reblooming lacecap hydrangeas that, according to Endless Summer, “boast picturesque deep pink or periwinkle blue hydrangea flowers (depending on soil pH) from late spring through fall.” The blooms are borne on deep green foliage and make beautiful additions to landscaping. They were the first reblooming lacecaps on the scene, and they’re still garden favorites in the South.

These hydrangeas grow to heights of 3-5 feet and spread to widths of 3-4 feet. They grow in an upright posture with a rounded form. Endless Summer says, “With loads of dependable blooms and intense hydrangea colors, these lacecap hydrangea have become a favorite for everyone from new gardeners to Master Gardeners! Not only are Twist-n-Shout’s blooms remarkable, the stems on these shrubs are also vivid red, adding even more interest to your landscape. The stems are incredibly sturdy to support the large blooms and keep your garden looking full all summer long.”

These hydrangeas thrive in full sun to partial shade and make beautiful cut flowers in addition to adding visual interest in the garden.
