7 in stock
Hydrangea macrophylla, commonly called big leaf hydrangea, is a deciduous shrub with a rounded habit 3-6’ tall and as wide unless damaged by harsh winters or pruned smaller. It generally features serrate, obovate to elliptic, dark green leaves (4-8” long) and large clusters of long-blooming summer flowers in either lacecap form (flattened flower clusters of small fertile florets with scattered showy sterile florets often forming a marginal ring) or mophead form (globose flower clusters of mostly showy sterile florets). 'P11HM-11', commonly sold under the trade name of BLOOMSTRUCK, was bred by Bailey Nurseries and Dr. Michael Dirr and introduced in 2014. It is a cross between 'The Original' and 'Twist-n-Shout', two members of the Endless Summer® series, hydrangeas that were bred for their cold hardiness and the ability to bloom on both old and new wood. BLOOMSTRUCK has 3.5 to 5 in. wide mophead-type flower heads that are vivid deep rose to violet blue depending on the soil pH. The shrub will rebloom all summer long. It has strong red-purple stems and dark green leaves with red petioles and red veins and turns reddish purple in fall. 'BLOOMSTRUCK' grows 3 to 4 ft. tall and 4 to 5 ft. wide.
