About Blushing Bride® Hydrangea | Endless Summer®

Blushing Bride Hydrangea Features

The Blushing Bride Endless Summer Hydrangea, also known as Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Blushing Bride’, is a deciduous shrub that typically grows 3 to 5 feet tall and wide. This variety of Endless Summer Hydrangea produces large, pure white blooms that gradually turn pink or blue as they age. The flowers are large, mophead-like clusters, and like other Endless Summer Hydrangeas, Blushing Bride blooms on both old and new wood, producing flowers continuously from late spring to fall.

Growing Conditions

Blushing Bride Endless Summer Hydrangea thrives in partial shade, with morning sun and afternoon shade being the ideal growing condition. It prefers well-draining, moist soil that is rich in organic matter and benefits from regular watering, especially during periods of drought. This shrub is hardy in USDA zones 4 to 9, which means it can tolerate a wide range of temperatures, from -30°F to 20°F.

Care Requirements

Blushing Bride Endless Summer Hydrangea is relatively easy to care for, but there are a few things to keep in mind to ensure it stays healthy and blooms prolifically.

  1. Pruning: Endless Summer Hydrangea blooms on both old and new wood, so pruning is generally not necessary unless you need to shape the plant or remove dead or damaged branches. If you do prune, it is best to do it immediately after flowering.
  2. Soil pH: The color of the flowers is influenced by the pH of the soil, so if you want pink flowers, you should amend the soil with lime to make it more alkaline.
  3. Fertilizing: Blushing Bride Endless Summer Hydrangea benefits from regular fertilization with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer. Apply the fertilizer in the spring, just as new growth begins.
  4. Winter protection: In areas with harsh winters, it is a good idea to protect the plant from frost damage by covering it with burlap or another protective material.

In conclusion, Blushing Bride Endless Summer Hydrangea is a beautiful and versatile shrub that is perfect for adding elegance and charm to any garden or landscape. With its unique ability to bloom continuously throughout the growing season and its easy-care requirements, it’s no wonder this plant has become a favorite among gardeners of all skill levels. Whether used as a specimen plant or mass planting, Blushing Bride Endless Summer Hydrangea is sure to make a statement and provide years of enjoyment.

*The Blushing Bride Hydrangea is a deciduous/semi-evergreen plant and will go dormant during the winter months. When this plant is ordered during the Fall/Winter expect seasonal foliage decline(discoloration, spots, leaf drop) or the plant to arrive completely dormant.*

    Blushing Bride hydrangea arrived in great shape . Plant was healthy looking. Thank you. It is blooming right now. Excited and happy for the purchase.

    Purchased 6 Endless summer hydrangea, 3 Summer BloomStruck and 3 Blushing Bride, beautiful packed and quality plants. After receiving a couple of days they started to drop leaves, turn brown and started wilting. I spoke to Christie twice. She was very patient and helpful on explaining that it was expected that it would happen. She gave me some advice on care and they are in the ground and my hope are they will bounce back. 5 stars for quality and service. Thank you

    Plant arrived healthy with leaf buds on each stem. Put in ground about 10 days and you can see green on each little bud. PBM’s shipping is always terrific and arrives at my house quickly.

    I purchased seven BB hydrangea. One arrived looking wilted but the rest were fine. They have been in the ground about 3 weeks and are all looking well. 5 of them have new buds so I hope to see a little color this summer. Having bought the smallest size, I knew it would take some time for them to grow but they are very small. But they have definitely grown some in the past few weeks.

    This Spring, I purchased 2 Blushing Brides, as well as other shrubs (White Wedding, Twist-n-Shout, etc.) Have been very pleased with the purchase experience. The plants were packaged very well (as compared to a purchase made with a competitor; terrible packaging), and all of the plants are thriving, beautiful, and blooming. If I ever need to purchase plants again, I will definitely use Plants-by-Mail.

    Beautiful large plants, well packaged. Very pleased. The only problem in the order was the delay in shipment because the plants were incorrectly marked as shipped. Once the error was found, the plants did arrive quickly.

    Have never bought plants on line but due to covid, I did. I’m so glad I found plants online. Ordered multiple hydrangeas. Plants arrived quickly, packaged great and were very healthy. They have been in the ground a few weeks now and doing great! Very happy with order. Looking again to order more plants!

    I bought this beautiful plant in June of this year. It was healthy, well-packaged and in bloom already. I immediately planted in the garden and it has not slowed down. There wasn’t even any visible shock from planting it in the heat of summer in south Louisiana. Very pleased with my first purchase from you and will definitely be a returning customer! Thank you!

    Came well packaged and healthy. I ordered 2 of these hydrangeas in a 2 gal container. I was surprised at how big both plants are and already blooming. Shipping was quick. I will definitely buy again!!!
