Meet the shocking blue hydrangea called Nantucket Blue. New petals look lemony yellow and then mature to this deep blue which is shockingly gorgeous.
It’s ok with me if you drool and gawk at these photos.
There are also shades of lavender on the same plant.
Loving the lemon lime new buds.
This hydrangea will bloom till frost cause it blooms on new wood.
I used Espoma Holly Tone in the spring and will apply again two more times before frost.
I live in zone 7 North Carolina and these grow in morning sun and afternoon shade.
And so cool it has some lavender blooms—which may be the case if your soil is higher in ph. This is not a type ph sensitive hydrangea but will show some variations. Add Espoma Soil Acidifier for blue hydrangeas to enhance the blue.
I’m going to cut a bouquet tomorrow. They have stolen my heart.
