Anyone grow Hornli or After Midnight?

Just curious how they perform and the color of yours. My hydrangeas go blue except for Pia. Thanks

First year for aftermidnight so it is pink but is a really nice
hydrangea. My mother has a Hornli but next to the house foundation so pink also. Does anywone know the parents of Aftermidnight?

After Midnight is purported to be part serrata and macrophylla.

It is also one of four parents to Bloomstruck :)

Who are the other 3 parents? Midnight has fantastic foliage.

I believe Bloomstruck's other parents are Penny Mac, Lady in Red, and Twist n Shout.

But since, Twist n Shout was derived from Penny Mac + Lady in Red, I'd venture to guess that After Midnight was crossed with Twist n Shout? I guess Mike Dirr would know the answer. :)

Was wondering if ES was in the parentage.

I must say the foliage is by far the best of any hydrangea I have.
