description for "Hydrangeas: Hydrangea macrophylla ʻBlushing Brideʼ (PP17, 169)"

Pure white blooms of 'Blushing Bride' have semi-double florets that gradually mature to a sweet, pink blush. The disease and mildew-resistant foliage is an attractive dark green, providing a striking background for Blushing Bride’s mophead blooms. Strong stems and branches keep the plant sturdy and upright in the garden, and make it a perfect flower for cutting. Grows 3-6 feet. Flowers all season long. To encourage rebloom, remove spent flowers. Because Endless Summer 'Blushing Bride' blooms on new growth, you don’t have to wait until the next season to see baskets full of new blooms. Edited by M.Tate.
