Hydrangea Forever and Ever Red – Yet to know More

2006 has had a mind boggling number of exceptional plant presentations and its lone February. This week we are including one more new plant sure to be a champion for quite a long time to come – Hydrangea Forever and Ever Red. A game of the first Forever and Ever, this enormous mophead is the primary red hydrangea that sprouts on new development! The splendid red blossoms top the burgundy stems and mature to superb shades of purple. The plant propensity is reduced, developing to just 4 feet tall and wide.

Rehash Blooms on a Compact Plant

In case you are an admirer of the Endless Summer, this is an absolute necessity have for your spring garden. Like its parent, the first Forever and Ever, Forever and Ever Red seems to have the entirety of the characteristics of the Endless Summer Hydrangea that grounds-keepers have gone gaga for. It blossoms over and over on both old and new wood, guaranteeing that your hydrangea will be shrouded in lovely sprouts all through the season – demonstrated dependably winter tough to Zone 4 (less 30 degrees) tried in Michigan. How to dry hydrangeas? Likewise, Hydrangea Forever and Ever Red is supposedly unaffected by soil PH. The tone ought to be red changing to purple in all dirts. Being excessively careful, in truly corrosive soils I propose adding two or three small bunches of lime when planting. From what we have seen and heard, Forever and Ever has numerous characteristics that conceivably may make it better than Endless Summer (in case that is conceivable!), including:

  • Larger bloom bunches

  • Larger individual florets with frilled petal edges

  • More reduced development propensity by, about a foot

  • Waxy, rugged leaves

Planting and Care

  • For best outcomes plant late-winter to pre-fall

  • Perform best in wet, yet not wet, soil. Add Soil Moist on the off chance that you think the dirt is excessively dry

  • Prefers a region with morning sun and evening conceal

  • Plant so the highest point of the root ball is a half-inch beneath the outer layer of the dirt

  • Mulch with two-three crawls of natural mulch

  • Use a modest bunch of Bulb-Tone compost at planting and again in late November and early March

  • Can be scaled back in Spring or Summer or kick the bucket to the ground in Winter and still have many blossoms the following season

  • Remove the spent blossoms as they blur and watch the plant keep on sprouting the entire summer
