BloomStruck® is a new edition to the Endless Summer® Collection of re-blooming hydrangeas, and we are glad they arrived because they are simply gorgeous. These hydrangeas will fill with large blooms measures 3 to 5" across, which range in color from blue/purple, pink, and green depending on your soil composition. The ability to alter hydrangea bloom color is a very fun tool for a gardener - with the right application of fertilizer a hydrangea can be transformed from pink to blue or vice versa.
Beyond the blooms, BloomStruck also has red-purple stems, and dark green leaves with red petioles and red veins. This will add a nice contrast to other blooms and leaves in your garden. Many Hydrangeas will droop and fall in the heat, but BloomStruck is cultivated with strong stems and heat tolerance to avoid this. It also has above average heat tolerance, making BloomStruck a beautiful and hearty addition to your garden.

Caring for BloomStruck® Endless Summer® Hydrangea
Hydrangeas do well in areas that have well drained consistently moist soil that is free of compaction. prepare your soil by loosening it up with tilling or digging and then mulch well around the flowers to discourage mowers and other traffic. These hydrangeas should be pruned back int he spring removing any growth that isn't green when scratched with a thumbnail, but they can be trimmed to about 1 ft. to keep a tighter more compact appearance. Apply a slow release fertilizer in the spring for best results.
