Description

The first reblooming lacecap EVER

Pink or blue florets will light up your garden.

Here it is—the 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 year—and 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 multi-color, multi-season, multi-appeal shrub, and we highly recommend that you reserve one immediately for your garden. It may just be your favorite new plant.

Consistent bloom

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Twist and Shout is a wonderful hydrangea that provides beautiful lace-cap blooms. In my upper Midwest garden I get more consistent blooms from my two Twist and Shout shrubs than I do from my two Endless Summer Hydranges. Their flower mass may not be as large as Endless Summer, but there are more flower clusters. A thoroughly enchanting shrub.

Amazing!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I live in the Chicago area where weather can be fickle. Last winter was horrible. I had to cut all of my hydrangeas down to the ground, and I thought I might have lost them. They looked horrible. Well, they grew, they bloomed, they were beautiful! "Twist and Shout" has just out done itself. It has bloomed with new blooms all summer each one larger and more beautiful than the next. I didn't think I would like the lace caps that much as I usually preferred the mop heads. This one has become my favorite. I give it some acid, and it blooms blue here in our alkaline soil. It is easy to take care of and has just been a show stopper all season.
