> David Ramsey Mophead - trade gallon
One of the handful of Hydrangea macrophyllas identified as a re-bloomer by the research work done by Dr. Dirr and others of his team at UGA. DNA tests showed it was a near match with "Endless Summer". It has performed similarly for us. That means either pink or blue mophead blooms on new growth as well as old terminals if grown well and deadheaded of the first round of blooms. This assumes you have a long enough growing season to get the 2nd flush. Not patented or trademarked so not as expensive as some other re-bloomers. Zones 5-9. For more information on the DNA tests performed by Dr. Lindstrom, Matthew Pelto & Dr. Dirr, see Molecular assessment of remontant (Reblooming) Hydrangea macrophylla cultivars in Journal of Environmental Horticulture, 2003, 21:57-60.
> Oak Hill Mophead - trade gallon
A pastel mophead identified through the extensive research of the team assembled by Dr. Michael Dirr at the University of Georgia as one of a handful of re-blooming mophead hydrangeas, Hydrangea macrophylla ’Oak Hill’ is very much in the mode of "Endless Summer" or "Penny Mac" but has received little publicity and no marketing campaign so it remains a rare find for the gardening public. Flowers on both old & new growth of the season. Like the true "re-bloomers" it will do so ONLY if you remove the spent blooms (deadhead) the first flush. Quite an easy grow and a fine plant that’s been shoved aside by the marketing mavens & plant megaliths -- a bargain for gardeners who wish to avoid the patented and heavily marketed clones that so often don’t perform up to their glossy hype. Height to 5 feet; deciduous. Zones 5 - 9.
> All Summer Beauty Mophead - trade gallon
A wonderful, long blooming variety of pastel tones, pink or blue as your soil dictates, often some of each on one shrub, with large but not oversized flowerheads. It blooms from secondary buds along the stems, so once established it can produce blooms even after a late spring freeze and continue until the first fall frost. The flowers age with wonderful hues of sea green, muted rose, and faded turquoise. Height to 4 feet or a bit more. Zones 6 - 9.
> Mme Mouillere Mophead - trade gallon
The classic white mophead, Hydrangea macrophylla ’Madame Emile Mouillère’, grows to 6’ x 6’. What color doesn’t work with white? (Consult your detergent box.) This mophead has won awards for nearly a century & is considered the best white mophead macrophylla by those who know. (Dirr, Mallet, Lawson-Hall, Haworth-Booth.) Older, established plants show some ability to rebloom late season. Part shade. Mid season. Zones 6-9.
