Everlasting Revolution (Hydrangea macrophylla)
This dense grower is packed with thick, deep green leaves forming a rounded mound in the landscape. June sees buds developing at the terminal of each stout branch and, by mid to late month, these buds open to reveal fat mop-head flowers that start blue in acidic soils, pink in more basic soils. As the flowers age they add purple, maroon, deep pink and green shades change through late summer and fall . This constantly changing, season long bloom is unique to the everlasting series and keeps this plant up front in terms of long term landscape beauty as does this selection's extremely strong re-bloom. 'Revolution' blooms on new and old wood, needs very little pruning and is perfect in a small to medium sized landscape spot.
