Here it isthe one and only reblooming lacecap hydrangea, and it can be yours. (Order now, though. We're seriously low on quantity already.) The first lacecap cultivar in the amazing Endless Summer® series of reblooming hydrangeas from Dr. Michael Dirr, this ultra-compact shrub is just the right size for large containers as well as the shade border. It will regale you with two seasons of beautiful blooms every yearand if you live in an area where springs can be late and unexpectedly frosty, it will guarantee you a late-summer to fall flower show even if the first round of blooms gets nipped in the bud.
Bred from 'Penny Mac' x 'Lady in Red', Twist-n-Shout® comes by its good looks, vigorous growth, and dependable rebloom honestly. Just 3 to 5 feet high and wide, it leafs out in spring with a profusion of bright green foliage, very showy and dense. By early summer the first blooms are already opening, each with an inner circlet of tiny fertile flowers surrounded by a large, loose ray of sterile florets. Both the flowers and the florets may be pink or blue, depending on the pH level of the soil. And as if all this color weren't enough, the flower stems are a bright pinkish-red. Talk about gilding the hydrangea.
The second wave of flowers occurs toward autumn, just when the garden is looking a bit threadbare and between times. These flowers are superb in fresh or dried arrangements, and also mature beautifully right on the plant, drying into antique hues as autumn becomes colder.
. . . But still there's more! The foliage gets into the act on Twist-n-Shout, turning from green to orange, then rosy-red, and finally maroon in autumn. This is truly a multicolor, multiseason, multiappeal shrub, and we highly recommend that you reserve one immediately for your garden. It may just be your favorite new plant.
