Anyone have mature Summer Beauty?

drich30099August 5, 2010

Hi, i'm still looking for some reblooming hydrangeas but the pickins' are slim! I prefer pink, but blue is ok too, whatever they turn out to be in my soil. What I now realize is I'm looking for 3-4' tall and wide plants, when mature. Or, if I prune and they'll still bloom that's ok. Our Menard's has Summer Beauty on clearance right now, I came home to look up the info. and found conflicting details, first the description says 3x4' tall and wide, and then farther down says can get 6-8 foot!!! I'm looking to hide the bottom of some lilacs, not overpower them with some hydrangeas!!

Thanks!

I have a mature All Summer Beauty- it's between 4 and 5 feet high, and 5-6 feet wide. I suppose 'Summer Beauty' could be a different cultivar, since there are so many out there, but I'm going to guess it's the same thing. Hope that helps! Best bet for a small rebloomer is probably Mini Penny, if you can find one...

Good luck!
