  • FAIRYTRAIL™ Green Cascade Hydrangea®

    Meet the first ever Cascade Hydrangea® available in North America! We’re confident you’ll love its unique horizontal growing habit, especially since flowers develop at every leaf cluster along its graceful, trailing stems. Its summer borne florets are filled with deckle-edged petals, bringing a frilly, lacy look to the landscape. There are no limits to the ways you can use Fairytrail Bride® in the garden – it’s ready to wow your neighbors in hanging baskets, containers, cascading over retaining walls, and filling in mixed beds.

    We recommend part sun (4-6 hrs sun/day) for this plant; morning shade is particularly key for its success. See, the Cascade hydrangea plant itself is actually quite hardy. However, it blooms much, much earlier than other old wood-blooming hydrangeas, like big leaf and mountain. This makes its beautiful blooms extra susceptible to spring frosts and freezes. We found that if the plant is grown in a spot with morning shade, then the potential damage from those spring cold snaps is mitigated because the frost melts more slowly, limiting the damage it causes to the delicate floral tissue.

    Why grow Fairytrail Bride® Cascade Hydrangea®:

    – Incredibly floriferous!

    – Lush! Mid-sized habit is filled with healthy green foliage.

    – Totally new opportunity to love and learn more about hydrangeas.

  • LET’S DANCE BIG BAND® Reblooming Bigleaf Hydrangea

    An endless drive for improvement is what motivates our big-leaf hydrangea breeding, so for us to make a new introduction, a plant has to be significantly better than what’s already available. That’s why Let’s Dance Big Band hydrangea has been added to the line: it combines bodacious, big mophead flowers with pure, true colors (pink in neutral/basic conditions, blue in acidic conditions) on a plant that survives winter better and reblooms better. That means more flowers, from the beginning of hydrangea season until the snowflakes fly!

  • LET’S DANCE CAN DO!® Reblooming Bigleaf Hydrangea

    Let’s Dance Can Do! hydrangea is an excellent rebloomer, requiring only a short period of vegetative growth in order to create new wood blooms. However, it has another trick up its sleeve: it sets its flower buds along the entire length of the stem, not merely at the tips. This means that if this hydrangea is cut back, or damaged by cold temperatures, those lower old wood buds will still develop into flowers. It’s a huge leap forward in achieving success with hydrangeas for landscapers, home gardeners, growers, and retailers alike. Abundant, semi-double, star-like florets make the lacecap flowers very showy.

    Why grow Let’s Dance Can Do!® Long blooming bigleaf hydrangea?

    • incredible flower coverage
    • easy maintenance
    • very long bloom time
