Hydrangea - Twist and Shout
Hydrangea - Twist and Shout
Love the marvelously sophisticated blooms of delicate Lacecap Hydrangeas? Well, how about a reblooming variety that produces flowers from spring through fall?
Decorate your landscape with Endless Summer® Twist-n-Shout® Hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla 'PIIHM-I' PP 20,176). You'll love everything about it, but especially the way the light, lacy flowers seem to dance on top of the deep, quilted, green foliage. Look closer to see bright red stems, a knockout addition to cut flower arrangements.
You've no doubt heard about Endless Summer reblooming plants. They are true improvements on the old standards.
Twist-n-Shout was the world's first reblooming Lacecap variety. It blooms early in the season on old wood from last year. Then, the blooms keep coming on new wood, or growth shoots from the roots this season.
You'll adore using these pretty, compact shrubs in your landscape. They prefer to be in partial shade, which is a blessing. It can be challenging to find plants that thrive in that type of light condition. Twist-n-Shout adds a very elegant look to spots in afternoon shade.
Lacecap Hydrangeas are much more subtle than their Mophead cousins. Their lovely flower structures are borne in flat-topped clusters. Sterile florets are arranged in a charming little circle around the smaller fertile, pollen bearing florets. The blooms look like precious little Fairy rings.
But don't let the delicate blooms fool you! These tough plants are cold hardy to Zone 4 and heat tolerant to Zone 9.
The official name of this beautiful Hydrangea is Twist-n-Shout, but you may see it spelled the Twist & Shout Hydrangea or the Twist and Shout Hydrangea. No matter, it's still a perfect stand-alone specimen plant, or in combination with other plants in your landscape. The compact, rounded form also makes it easy to use as Thrillers in large outdoor containers.
Twist-n-Shout flowers all summer long. The gorgeous blossoms can be colored pink or periwinkle blue, depending upon your soil type. In higher soil pH, the flower color is pink. In acidic soils, the color is periwinkle blue.
This giving shrub doesn't quit at summer's end, either. You'll enjoy a show all year with fall color and winter interest.
In cool fall seasons, the leaves can mellow into that deep, delicious shade of burgundy-red to celebrate the change of seasons. Leave the last flush of flowers to dry on the plant for a pretty winter display that catches frost and sculpts light snowfall.
